The Harvest Begins

Second cucumber of the year!

After complaining about my cucumbers earlier, I have now harvested two, with three more just waiting to go. They’re sweet and crunchy – yum!

Late July chard garden

I was surprised to see how well the Swiss chard has survived the summer. You can see some bolting kale in there (along with a volunteer tomato plant), but the chard has not bolted at all. In fact, it’s been growing better as we get deeper into the summer. This probably indicates that it wouldn’t be a total waste of time to plant the chard seeds left over from the spring planting. Time for another round of Rick Bayless’ chard tacos….
