Was it just two weeks ago that I picked my first zucchini? I hardly remember, except that it was melt-in-your mouth kind of good. Since then we’ve eaten 6 or so of them. We had cucumbers, a few cherry tomatoes, plenty of peppers and a meal of greenbeans last week.
And suddenly, I’m starting to think we might need a produce stand. Here’s a two day take on my harvest—after we ate at least three zucs and five cucumbers and a few peppers. I’m so excited!
There’s so much I don’t really know about gardening in this climate. I have no idea what the splotches on leaves are and it took me a bit of googling to figure out what was eating my beans, and that I really do have to hand pick those beetles off the leaves. I’m thinking in the years to come, if I am still down south, I’ll have a better grip on it. So far, besides planting, watering and weeding much less often than I should have, we’ve done nothing.
But for all that I don’t do…the garden is growing, and it is growing fast. Let’s hope I can figure out how to make it survive as long as possible!
