Lots of firsts when I went into the garden yesterday!
First beans, first peppers, first tomatoes and first squash & zucchini!
Yellow Wax beans, Romano flat beans, green bush beans, Charleston Belle peppers, Jimmy Nardello Frying peppers, pepperoncini, cherry and Currant tomatoes along with some lettuces that haven't bolted yet.
LOCK YOUR DOORS, the summer squash and Zebra zukes are coming in!
A mix of yellow wax and green beans ready for the freezer -
Cut Romano Flat beans all blanched and ready for storage -
The remaining onions were pulled, most had bolted -
Loch got his first bee sting yesterday, with no serious reaction - congrats!
Of course, his bee suit arrived right afterwards in the mail LOL. He will be all set for his first time working in the 4-H club hives next weekend, and I'll feel a little better knowing that he had no significant reaction to his first sting.
He complained about how big the suit was, but hey - I'm not buying one of these every 6 months, it needs to last awhile :)
Finished off the evening by grilling some tuna steaks, the last of the dug potatoes and of course, beans!
We may be short on tomatoes this year due to blight, but nobody will starve as long as they will eat beans and zucchini!
Another first was watering the garden - can you believe I haven't had to water until yesterday? Of course after I made the effort of dragging hose all over I woke up to light showers this morning. Wasn't even in the forecast, but I'll take it! Of course, lots of rain this year has meant for blight on steroids...
I'm finally able to have some numbers to put into the sidebar harvest counter, woohoo!
