Well it’s official. I have become a domesticated housewife!
This week we were able to harvest our first crops!
|2 very pale, oddly shaped cucumbers.
2 normal cucumbers and 1 Beefsteak tomato.
On the right is Fern Leaf Dill and Lemon Balm
While this may not seem like a large bounty, it was more than enough to whip up a salad as a light dinner for us. Doesn’t this look yummy!!

Not too much else going on this week. We have 3 Cherry tomatoes and 3 Big Boys but they are no where near ready for picking. There are over a dozen Beefsteaks, but I don’t see them being picked for at least 2 weeks.
Of course the herbs are going crazy. There is no way we are going to use all the Basil.
We’ve learned a lot our first season of veggie growing and have already started batting around changes we will be making for next year.
