How's the vegetable garden looking this week - May 21

I stopped by the garden today to pick peas and lettuce for dinner.  I don't have pictures of dinner but I made bow tie pasta with a cream sauce with peas and diced ham.  Simmer cream for a few minutes, added fresh shelled peas and heritage hog diced ham.  Pour over bow ties and add parmesan cheese.  Had a salad of lettuce, arugula, spinach, mustard greens and radishes.  Made a vinaigrette with smooshed garlic and salt, dijon mustard, sherry vinegar and olive oil.

Here are some pictures from the vegetable garden today

Fresh Peas

Peas on left, snow peas on right, green beans under row cover

Radishes, chard, mustard, spinach, lettuce, arugula

Tomatoes in the funny contraption

Broccoli in the middle

Fava beans. I can't wait for these!

Favas mixed with random, stray potatoes

Shallots with sticks for pole beans

Beets and onions (and Martin's legs)


Carrots and garlic

Dill.  Self seeded but I will use it all for pickles
