I can’t believe it’s only been four weeks since we started our garden. I’m so excited to say this year’s garden is already doing better than last years.
This is the first year I’ve grown radishes. My thought was I can just pluck them from the garden and have one or two rather than buying a bag of them and wasting most of them, since I’m the only one who will eat them. I had to pick one to see how big it was. It was a pretty good size. I’d say a week longer and they’ll be full size. I think we’ll be able to have two batches of radish this year – we’ll see.
If you look close there are two little green peppers!! Peppers are expensive at the grocery. Most of these guys are going in the freezer for winter. (My husband loves to use a lot of them in the chili he makes).
Can’t wait for the tomatoes. I could eat a tomato everyday and never tire of them. Freshly picked, sliced with a little sugar on them…nothing better. Okay, maybe sliced with cottage cheese, freshly cooked in pasta sauce, fresh Pico de Gallo. I could go on and on.
My son is impressed that we haven’t used any fertilizers or chemicals on it. I’m just happy to have fresh, clean, food.
