After several weeks of rainy grey weather, if anything, it felt as though we'd jumped the gun and planted far too early.
Now that we're into July things finally feel as though they're catching up (or at least close to catching up).
Of course, the weeds are also growing quite well and we've definitely fallen down on our weeding duties.
Our herb barrel has also really picked up over the course of the past month.
In early June it didn't have much going on.
And now in early July it's damn near full (and that's after a fair bit of chives, thyme, and mint harvesting).
And Jeannette's been collecting various greens (beet, kale, spinach, pea, and strawberry spinach) for at least the past two weeks).
So just to round up what we've had so far because I haven't been diligent about photographing the harvest we've managed to get at least a handful of each of the following (in more or less this order):
3) Apple Mint
6) Strawberry Spinach
7) Beet Greens
8) Pea Shoots
9) Pea Pods
12) Basil (two varieties)
My recollection of what we have left to come is as follows:
1) Green Beans
4) Hot Peppers
5) Sweet Peppers (two varieties)
9) Sweet Corn
If all the stuff on this second list works out we may actually manage something of a feed for ourselves at some point this summer. I'll be particularly impressed with us if we can somehow managed herb roasted potatoes and corn at the same time (and maybe with some edamame for protein).
