VEGGIES: Community Garden Update, Part III

We were away in Vegas for July 4th and while we were away I was worried about my garden. Thank god I have some very helpful garden friends who agreed to water my plot while we were away. I stopped by for a visit yesterday and everything grew so much while we were gone!

We were able to pick our first cucumber – it is HUGE – and we have several others that will be ready this week. So much cucumber salad to make (recipe coming this week).  Also, my first zucchini is almost ready. Who doesn’t love roasted zucchini?!

We picked some cilantro for Taco Tuesday last night. It added such a nice freshness to our turkey tacos. It looks like my white and purple eggplants are finally taking off.  The bugs loved the eggplant plant leaves but they are leaving the flowers alone, for now anyway. There are beets and radishes everywhere. Tonight I am going to pull the radishes and pickle some for salad. Then I am going to plant some more! The lettuce and kale are getting so tall. It has been great to have for salads every night.

I have so many tomatoes! They are all green at the moment but I cannot wait for them to turn RED.  Also, I FINALLY have some tomatillos growing.  The little green lantern pouches will soon be filled with juicy fruit! I was a little worried that the plant wouldn’t produce fruit because typically you need two plants to cross pollinate.  But it seems that wasn’t necessary!

It is so exciting to finally have some real fruit and vegetables of my labor. Gardening is hard work but really so rewarding! I cannot wait for next weeks update. Who knows what will pop up next?! (I am hoping for some carrots soon)
