What have I done this year? It’s been a challenge, that’s for sure.
With all the turmoil I did a minimum planting at the community garden. Tomatoes, Onions. Okra. Tromboncino.
The asparagus and rhubarb, my perennials, keep producing.
I did put in gladioli.
They went crazy. With a dozen of them flowering at once.
I also am finally getting tomatoes.
Mostly Early Girls. A few black cherries. I haven’t gotten any red figs or purple calabash heirlooms. There are green ones on the plants that survived.
I got three of the Italian zucchini, aka tromboncino. My two plants have more tiny veggies on them but not ready yet.
The okra is going nuts, as usual. I need to remember to get there often to pick them before they become too large and woody.
Okra fries from Deep Run Roots cookbook tame the “slimy” beast.
Gardening is my outlet. What’s yours?
