Saturday Farmers' Market. (Though the farmers market we go to is on Sundays, and it's finally opening so hopefully we'll be headed there tomorrow.) And I feel a bit lame even participating in this, as we're always on the tail end of things. Some of you are harvesting goodies already, and other have these big lush plants growing away. And we, just last weekend, finally got the final things planted. (Oh, okay, not final--we still have to plant a few green beans and some pumpkins. Oh, and my herbs.) And waiting until last weekend to put the tomatoes and peppers in the ground almost wasn't good enough, as we had a hard freeze warning Sunday night---luckily, our baby plants fared okay. And just a few days later it was in the 90s--good thing plants are so hardy, huh?
As far as the things planted in the main garden, I'm not really sure how much of it is doing. We're trying quite a few things for the first time, and I just don't know if they're looking as they should or not. :P Like this cabbage:
Oooh, and the celery. Another new one for us. Looks good to me, but again, what the hell do I know?!! Of course, if it does do well and we end up with as much as I planted, I'm probably going to have to learn to like eating it. *shudders*
(And yes, I totally need to weed again.)
And hooray for those early bursts of deliciousness! Won't be too long until we're eating radishes. (Yep, they need to be thinned--badly.)
