Knitting production has not been impressive lately; slogging along on the Poetry In Stitches Leaf Sweater and a pair of STR socks…
More interesting and productive is DH’s garden; we enjoy dinners including garden fresh something everyday.
basil, yummmm, we are wallowing in basil decadence lately
cardoons, these are past eating, but awfully photogenic
they look like some sort of medieval torture vegetable
or the something you’d make bad children eat
it’s actually the stalks we eat early in the season,
but Mr. Bumblebee was thoroughly enjoying the bloom
wall of scarlet runner beans,
we’ll enjoy these all winter in fantastic cassoulet DH creates
there are peas in among the beans,
I enjoy eating these right off the vine
the backside of the bean wall is all cilantro
there they are, tiny brussel sprouts
blueberries, lots of blueberries, handfuls on cereal every morning
volunteer tomatillas, they planted themselves out of the compost!
some sort of squash
I love these violets, they pop up all over our yard, including in the vegetable garden and we take care not to step on them
artichokes as pretty as tasty
more violets coming through the cracks in the patio,
along with some oregano, which also
pops up all over our yard!
There’s lots more, tomatoes, lettuce, leeks, cucumber, peppers, strawberries, carrots, pumpkins, and the occasional stray potato.
