First harvest

It has not been a good growing season for me at the Saint John Community Garden. I planted basil, thyme, radishes, carrots, lettuce and peas. And so far, only a few peas and radishes have sprung up. When I checked on my little garden last week, it was surrounded by pooled water. It was basically like a mud puddle.

Optimistic that the rest of the summer will be hot and dry, I have tried planting more. Yellow and green beans, more peas and lettuce. If all goes well, I could have batch of fresh veggies by the middle to late August.

Till then, the hearty radishes have reigned supreme, and are they ever tasty. Zesty, peppery and crunchy, these guys are great in salads or just on their own. A taste of summer. Yum!
