Harvest Monday, 6/25/18
Sun Gold cherries on the left and Be My Baby cherries on the right with Mrs. Burns lemon basil.
The basil has a delicious scent, a lovely mix of lemon and basil. I'm going to try drying it for tea.
The kale plants are massive. They're obviously loving all the rain we've been getting. These greens are growing in the shadiest bed in the garden. The giant leaves are surprisingly tender and have good flavor. With none of the bitterness I've found with growing collards in the high heat of summer. They show no signs of bolting, we're supposed to get close to a 100 degrees this week (37.8 Celsius) which will be a good test for them.
There's lots going on in the garden. We've got corn tasseling and melons swelling. I'll be sharing pictures in a couple days.
I hope everyone is having a great summer. It's crazy that July is almost upon us. Time to start thinking about fall crops.
Please join us for Harvest Monday as hosted by Dave at Our Happy Acres. Where gardeners from around the world share the wonders of their garden as well as trials and tribulations.
