Once again my community garden plot exceeds my expectations. I had thought I'd run over for a quick minute this morning to clear out a handful of carrots to make room for fall season seeds, but that turned into a half hour of digging up lots of carrots and leaving still more in the ground for when I have more time. Carrot soup recipes, anyone?
I also have given up keeping up with all the tiny currant tomatoes. I pick a pint of these little guys each day and almost as many end up on the ground. Ah well, feast or famine, right?
Following up on last week's report of bean flowers forming, the green/pole beans are now starting to come in. Only a few today, I will check back in a couple days and see if I have enough to make a meal from at that point.
How is your garden growing this week?
