I joined a fruit and vegetable co-op and picked up my first basket of produce at our local park this weekend. Look at the variety for only $15! Apples, grapes, bananas, strawberries, limes, avocados, tomatoes, peppers, garlic, broccoli, green beans, peaches and cantaloupe. We had the green beans and broccoli for dinner and they were wonderful.
Last night after my husband got back from work, we harvested the last of the carrots, green and yellow beans, onions and bell peppers from the garden. For an inaugural and semi-experimental planting, I was pleased with the results, especially with the quality of our tomatoes and bell peppers. We're in a hurry to plant again, so we started to prepare the beds. I don't recommend night gardening. Though the temperatures were more comfortable, we had to work by the light of a flashlight and killed six black widow spiders. I had to agree with my husband when he said that gardening sure makes you appreciate food. It's a lot of work! :)
