I picked the first couple broccoli heads for dinner tonight. They are a little young yet but I couldn't resist. Fresh broccoli is the one taste that has stuck with me since childhood, there really is nothing better tasting then broccoli fresh from the garden.
Others things that are well on their way in the garden are peas & lettuce. Shelling peas will be ready any day now and we have lettuce coming out of our ears. Good thing the second sowing of radishes are almost ready. The red fingerling potatoes that I planted in April are just starting to flowers as well.
Lack luster crops are the beans which rotted the first time and now the squirrels are digging up to second sowing! I am starting to freak out a little that July is coming up soon and I only have have dragon tongue beans growing. Mister Early tomato is also still green so that is a bit of a bummer.
Today being the first day of summer, it has brought seasonal weather finally. Next week is going to be nice and warm. The warmest day next week is forcasted to be 29c(84f) and with the humdix factored in will feel like 37c(99f). My veggies should be pleased.
Lastly I have added Google AdSense to my blog and I have made them blend with the blog so they are not to intrusive. My decision came after my Mom added an ad to her baking blog and has over $10 dollars on here account already. I thought if I had an extra few dollars each year I can order more seed and have more veggies to blog about. By no means am I propositioning readers to click them. My thought was more that some of the hundreds of people visiting a day may see something they are interested in as the ads are related to gardening.
