Tongue Harvest time anyone?
Just wondering if anyone else is enjoying the early harvest from their gardens yet. We have dined on fresh grown red potatoes, zucchini, peppers, garlic, basil and fresh green beans. Oh and can't forget the radishes!! Still have some time on tomatoes but they look awesome. Lorna and I enjoyed a wonderful omelet this morning with all the fresh ingredients, a side of Parmesan red-skinned potatoes and toasted french bread. Outdoors even!!! Yes Michigan!Wink

We have had lettuce, spinach, green beans, cucumbers and tomatoes already. Now if the pesky groundhog will stay away (think Caddyshack) we will have a huge crop of tomatoes and cucumbers soon.

While I was off playing in New York we had a power surge / outage at our house. A fuse blew in my sprinkler system. My garden got a bit dry. Somehow the weeds got water. Angry

I eat, therefor I am.

Ditto on spinach and lettuce, a tiny yellow squash plus a couple wee tomatoes. Our Romas will prolly be coming into full glory while we're out of town....hubby's already had a bumper crop of chile peppers (poblano, serrano, jalapeno, cubanelle.....think there might be some others). He's been making jars of bread & butter pickled chile peppers, total experiment and farkin' awesome!

Blah blah blah....yada yada yada!

Can't grow lettuce up here, the broccoli and cauliflower have struggled, still optimistic about all else, peppers are coming in great. Pumpkins will be ready. Still more to come, looks like we'll have corn.
"The peaceful days of harvest time!!!" Sleepy

We always start our really early down this way. It is always the first to be planted around April sometime.

So far, strawberries, basil, and one Italian squash. The rest of the garden looks great, but it will be a bit before I get more goodies.
I'm growing 7 kinds of tomato, 7 kinds of pumpkin, green onion, garlic, 3 kinds of basil, 3 kinds of lettuce, collard greens, dill, 7 kinds of peppers/chilis, parsley, cilantro, leeks, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, spinach, 4 kinds of squash, sugar snap peas, snow peas, Indian corn, cantaloupe, green beans, lima beans, carrots, radishes, cucumbers, raspberries, shallots, asparagus, and gourds. Whew!

If I'd known you were French, I'd have worn galoshes...

WOW Gungawoman - that's one impressive garden!! That must keep you pretty busy.

So far we've had lettuce, banana peppers, jalapeno peppers (made homemade guacamole just yesterday), a couple of handfuls of cherry tomatoes and we've been reaping the benefits of the herbs for quite some time. Looking forward to trying the heirloom tomatoes very soon as well as the bell peppers.

.....and a partridge in a pear tree!!

The hubby tried collards a couple yrs ago, he's a fan but we were totally overrun by them...

I love brussel sprouts! We have a recipe for a sauteed version, kinda time-consuming but well worth the effort!

Blah blah blah....yada yada yada!
