This past week we harvested a 15 ounces of homegrown vegetables from our square foot garden. This brings our total up to 3 pounds 6 ounces of goodness. Not to shabby considering none of the heavy stuff like tomatoes, potatoes or squash have been harvested.
The kale, yep, it’s still there. I used madam Chow’s recipe for sauteed kale last week and I’ll try and get it posted as soon as I can. It was delicious!
I planted 3 squares with green beans. I had to replant one of them this morning due to the evil slugs slithering about. I have a feeling a bottle of Sluggo is in my future.
Note to self: The red oak leaf lettuce needs to be picked.
Take a look at the zinnias! This is my first year growing them and I love going out to the garden each morning to see them.
This week will be our last week of sugar snap peas until fall. We still have a few more to pick and then I’ll be pulling up the vines and giving them to the chickens to munch on.
And last but not least, check out this picture of my first kohlrabi of the season. I don’t know what the heck I’m going to do with it, but I think it’s pretty cool looking. 🙂
Peace Out Girl Scouts, I’m off to play in the dirt.
