I mostly grow heirloom tomatoes (I think there are 15 varieties this year), but I feel like I should grow other things too. Seems silly not too.
We've had a lot of wet weather recently, but everything seems to be doing good and the lack of warm weather has kept things from bolting.
The mustard greens and lettuce mix are going to town. Can't eat it all fast enough!
The red celery starts I planted late have settled in. I planted green celery seeds but they didn't germinate - I probably planted them too deep and they didn't sprout. Here at the Lents Farmer, we sometimes forgo reading the planting information and consequently have mixed success. Isn't gardening fun?!? The red variety is supposed to taste better than the green. Right now it looks like tiny rhubarb.
It's amazing how many yellow squash you get from just a couple starts. In a couple weeks, I'll be handing these out at the freeway ramp just to get rid of them. Stop at the red light and get a squash.
I love to grow Scarlet Runner beans. The hummers like the flowers and the beans are very tasty. Some people don't care for them being fuzzy, but I think the flavor is good, especially when they are on the smaller side.
Kale is growing on me, figuratively, not literally.
Can't wait to eat this Romanesco! It's like eating a cross between broccoli and cauliflower. The spiral geometry of the flowers is so cool too.
There are several types of eggplants, hot peppers, basils, pumpkins/squash and a few other things intermixed, but I didn't get pics of them.
Hopefully in 2-3 weeks, I'll be enjoying my first tomatoes and my first BLT of the season.
