I failed again this year to make my garden neat and tidy. It’s a jungle again. I feel like the tomatoes are more disorderly than ever and the cucumbers…well, let’s just say not thinning them out early on has created a tangle of rebellious vines that will not take the hint to stay in the plot. But, growing in the jungle are teeny, tiny edamame……and the beginnings of a strong crop of green beans. The daikon are almost done, but I pulled this huge guy last week and Naoto enjoyed it on Sunday night. And I picked our first red tomato! It was a Sweet 100 and I shared it with Naoto. It was so sweet and juicy! I hope there are hundreds more in our future!
So far, we’ve harvested almost 15 ounces in radishes, peas, tomatoes, and lettuces. It’s just the beginning!
I hope to have some balcony* garden pictures next week. Some of my vining plants are finally starting to bloom and I think it’s my best summer out there yet!
How is your garden growing?
*I’ve begun calling the balcony the lanai as a nod to the Golden Girls.
