Those pictures were actually taken last week, when i had intended on showing you the progress. Then, before you could see them, i came down with the crud. You know, the stinky kind that produces fevers...in June of all months. Oy vey! So, after rendered to a sniffly & sneezy hunk of bed warming goo for 3 days, i finally felt well enough to write about them.
And today, feeling upright and spritely, i decided to take you along with me to visit the ol' A.G. to check on my pretties. And were we ever in for a surprise, folks!
|Oakleaf Lettuce and Snoball Cauliflower|
|Towering Ireland Creek Annie Beans|
|Purple Cherokee Tomatos and Candy Onions|
|first tomato!! Hooray!|
|Jericho Romaine Lettuce|
And since the lettuces are starting to look a little weary, i am making it a goal to harvest them all by the end of the week.
The results of two heads of romaine and two heads of oakleaf near the kitchen sink. :)
I was brutally picky with the gleanings, because we have some much poultry around that enjoy the trimming, that i figure i can be choosy with what we eat and still reap benefits. Only instead of being so leafy and flat, they'll be more oval and have some depth to them. :)
