Just the word “summer” brings a smile to my face. It’s filled with such promise.
And relaxing … well, who needs a spa when the summer rays lie just so carefully across your backyard hammock, or screened in porch? Just the word “summer” conjures up so many delightful pastimes.
Now that we’re about halfway through the season … does it still bring that delightful smile to your face? I hope so!
While summer means many things to many people … to me, one of the things I most look forward to is our family garden. Vacations, good reads, lazy days, blooming flowers … kitchen garden. It’s very near the top of my “summer list.”
This year … I wasn’t so sure how our family garden would fare with our, shall we say, mild weather. But after working in the garden this weekend, we were pleased to begin harvesting some more “summer” vegetables, albeit, a little later than usual. Here are some photos of what is growing in our garden.
We’ve harvested kale, celery, broccoli, cucumber, peppers, sugar snap peas and herbs. The tomatoes are growing as are the myriad varieties of peppers my brother always plants for salsa.
Do you have some great tips for a kitchen garden? We would love to hear about them in the comment section below!
