Burnin’ Like a Heat Wave

Guess what! We ate our first ripe tomato yesterday!

OK, so it was a total freak compared to the rest of the tomatoes, which are patiently ripening at their own sedate pace, but it shows what is possible. So don’t lose hope because tomatoes – everyone’s icon of summer garden goodness – are on their way!

Soon. Ish. 🙂

Anyway, for now, we’re still scraping along, taking what we can get from the garden as we wait for the late-summer, long-growing crops to ripen after their very slow start.  For this week we are hoping to harvest:

  • Mint
  • Green Onions
  • Purslane
  • Carrots
  • Collards
  • Garlic
