Photo Update 6.15.13

Good old dependable radishes, they forge on despite the weather. The first thing out of the ground, the radishes say, "We don't need no stinking sunshine!" But now we have sunshine and more produce will be quick to follow this lead!

French Breakfast radishes
The sunshine and warmth recently experienced is boosting the life of all the plants in the field, and allowing us to get ahead of the weeds!

Lacinato 'Dino' Kale
 It's always SUPER exciting when things start blooming! The peas began flowering today, and the cucumbers did a couple days ago.

Double Yield cucumbers, climbing and flowering!
Can't wait for fresh cucumbers!

Yellow onions and parsnips freshly weeded.
 I am excited about our new bunching onions. They are perennials, and will create delicious colonies of onions for years to come.

 The spinach is getting ready for it's first picking.

Early Jersey Wakefield
 The cabbages are making heads and looking lush and fabulous. The beets are looking full and ready for thinning, the third succession is coming up nicely--there will be plenty of beets this year!

Detroit Dark Red & Bull's Blood beets (and some weeds!)
 We have many herbs planted this year--cilantro, summer savory, parsley, oregano, french tarragon, lemon thyme, rosemary, dill, sage and chives. Chive flowers are pretty, and edible.

 And your dose of cute pigginess! They love the yummy weeds we pull from the garden.

Thanks for stopping by and reading our blog! Hope you have a great weekend and enjoy the sunshine that we have all waited so patiently for :)
