Finally made it to the garden at 10am and it was already hot and humid. There isn't too much work to do but I weeded around the community compost bin, weeded my plot, picked and watered. I also chat a lot with my fellow gardeners which is part of the fun of being in a community garden.
The produce is coming fast and strong and next week my CSA starts up - I've already told Sean to stop buying vegetables for the summer and have a shout out to friends to take the excess lettuce and mint. My gardening friend Edouard is going to be away for the month of July so I will be picking in his garden too - I will really need to have a plan of action to preserve all this food.
Here is today's harvest
The first leek!
I'm going to use this leek to make cold leek and potato soup - will be the Meatless Monday meal.
Fava beans in the back, mustard greens, cleaned leek and chiogga beets
Mizuna, a couple of new potatoes, the rest of the shelling peas and snow peas and a mountain of lettuce
