How Does the Garden Grow?

wicked fine, that's how.

pulled all the remaining beets today, which means it's time to think about a midsummer planting schedule. also picked a lovely zucchini, as well as four cucumbers and another ancho pepper - all of which immediately went into a salad with tomato and broccoli from the farm market.

We planted two varieties of cucumbers this year - this one has yet to yield (likely due to heavier deer damage this spring). Looking forward to a taste test once this plant catches up.

I take photos of tomatoes primarily for posterity's sake. I am too accustomed to losing them to hungry deer and dogs prior to harvest. Hopefully this year will be different.
