Pickling

May 6th

The garden continues to thrive thanks to a couple of weeks of cooler weather and a bit of rain. The tomatoes are going bonkers. The beets have been roasted and pickled:

The carrots are still delightfully tiny and perfect for the rabbit. (Nutmeg is becoming quite the spoiled bunny. Organic greens only, please.)

We’ve got zucchini for days. The kale, basil and rosemary are still going strong. And the spring onions and garlic are ready too. These cukes are going to become pickles later this week:

Hi Fozzie!

Next up: I’m planting pumpkins with my 5-year-old neighbor Jeremiah. And we’ve got heirloom watermelon, pickling cucumbers and squash headed our way for the hot summer months.

What are you growing?

  1. Waiting for things to get going here! Tomatoes, cherry tomatoes (my favorite), squash, an eggplant that doesn’t look that great so far, peppers, and some herbs.
