Summer Anticipation

Spring has come and gone and now all of our gardens have transitioned to the summer stage. Here that means everything is starting to fill out their fruits and vegetables. I’ve harvested a few zucchinis and cucumbers and they are hopefully going to continue for quite a few more weeks. The broccoli, turnips and beets have all been harvested and pulled out of the garden.

My anticipation is in relations to everything else in the garden. The corn and tomatoes were set back a little bit because of the cold and rainy spring.

A nice cucumber I just picked

On top of that the ground cherries gave my about half a pound of fruit a couple days ago. Strangely the bowl of ground cherries gets a little more empty everyday. I asked DW (who has discovered a love of ground cherries) and she wouldn’t fess up to eating them, but she can keep on eating them. It always feels good to know that my garden work is making someone I care about happy. I hope we all can get a bumper crop this summer. I’d love to here about what your harvesting and hope to harvest from your gardens. Good growing everybody.
