One Day's Harvest

Here's a picture that represents one day of picking from our garden (what made it inside the house anyway - some get eaten right after it's picked :).

As you can see, our tomatoes haven't come on in full abundance yet, but we've been getting lots of yummy corn. I picked the last of our first planting today. Our second planting will be ready in a week or two. I could have picked four times this much chard - we have it coming out our ears right now! As you can see, no zucchini today or yellow squash. They've been a huge disappointment. We've got tons more carrots ready to pick too, we just picked enough for a couple of days. Anyway, pretty good for one day huh? We pick about every other day and we usually fill up a large bowl full of vegetables each time. Mmmmh! I love this time of year! I can't wait for the cantaloupe and crenshaw!!

I am so jealous! We live in a community that the HOA doesn't allow gardening in your own yard! We can 'rent' out a plot near the front of the community...but that's no fun! And could you believe that our community is name "The Farm" ? Ha!

Oh man! I would go nuts! That's good that they let you rent one at least, but I agree that it's a lot more fun when you can go out in your back yard and feast on yummy fruits and veggies! :)

Beautiful produce. Wish I could share some zucchini with you.
