More Variety

Each day that goes by brings change to the garden. The potatoes are dug, the first planting of bush beans is spent and the plants pulled and put in the compost pile. It will be another couple of weeks before the second planting begins to produce beans. There is a little corn on the larger stalks. There are dozens of developing Tomatillos that will be made into simmer sauce and Tomatillo Jalapeno jam. The sunflowers are blooming.

The first few were the bronze colors, but now there is a tall lemon yellow one. I plant a variety mix of seed.

The grapes are plentiful and are beginning to turn purple. Soon some grape jelly will be made.

And this year they are up and off the ground.

The daily harvest looks different than a week ago, today there was the first red tomato and even though it was a plum tomato, it went in our dinner salad. I had gone out to pick a cucumber for the salad and came in with many, a few larger ones and a quart jar of of small ones that I put in to ferment to whole dills.

There are now three jars fermenting, one of sauerkraut, one of dill slices, and one of whole small dills. There are two already fermented of dilly beans in the refrigerator. The Jalapenos are getting of a size to start the pickled peppers that hubby loves with most dinners and some sandwiches. Two pints were done this afternoon as well.

Today has been dry and the evening ended with a beautiful pink sky.

Stay safe. Wear your mask. See you on the other side of this pandemic.

I would love to hear your comments on this post.
