Veggie Patch Update
A couple of recent views of the veg garden reveal plenty to eat and lots still to come. Here looking to the southwest strawberries in the foreground have just played out but this tiny patch yielded well over a gallon including the grand finale of strawberry shortcake for a dinner party of ten. Lots of onions are growing along, they should start to swell soon as the days approach their longest in June. To the right is the garlic, 60 heads to be harvested in about 6 weeks. I'm down to 4 of the 60 heads from last year so I think that worked out pretty well. Towards the back of the photo stellar stands of black kale, beets, turnips, carrots and peas on the fences, all of whch we've been eating recently.
