So last week I harvested and cooked a huge batch of greens, I thought were collards. Well at least half were purple romanesco, others might be same or
a broc variety, still tastes like collards tho cooked with lime or lemon juice, stock and some onion garlic and spices.
My 6' x 20' strawberry patch i put in 2 yrs ago against neighbors southern facing foundation has produced almost 1 lb a day for the past 3 days. I
have almost 12 bean mounds that are almost 1-2 feet tall now, each mound has 6 plants and about 4 varieties of pole bean
I have figured out a few good beds of arugula buttercrisp and other lettuce varieties in shadier spots, all now producing
Have a few store bought squash that are starting to produce, and snow peas ending up, tons of potatoes and carrots thriving now.
My only tomatoes this year are from seed, san marzano and a gorgeous beefsteak and a random cherry that keeps reseeding, also a first is tomatillos
from seed, both large and a cherry variety. They were unexpected so we will see how they work in this climate.
Tons of mints (5 varieties) cilantro, parsley, thymes, onions, savory, chive, tarragon, sage, vietnamese coriander and dill.
I will never try to start basil outside again, slugs think its crack
Oh and the blueberry bushes will be edible in another week, raspberries in 2
The heat is just now creeping up as the rain hits in light waves, stuff is growing!
