Today I enjoyed the first fruits of my garden in a true meal. I’ve had a few lettuce leaf trimming here and there but for lunch today I got to have a full salad with nothing but the lettuce leaves from my re-purposed sandbox. The tomatoes, bell peppers and carrots are still growing; nothing yet there to harvest, although they are doing great! My green beans had to be pulled and restarted. After a few significant rainstorms and being hit with a ball by my children…well, they could no longer make it. But, I have more seeds and have already started the next round…hopefully I will be able to keep my boys away and build some support trellis for them. Even though they are officially bush beans and don’t need it, I think it will help them with our continuous afternoon winds and rains (not to mention my whirlwind boys).
Green thumb? Not naturally, but I’m learning.
