A Little Pickin'
This morning's walk through the garden gave me a couple handfuls of produce. It's always awkward when there is just one okra pod to pick. Seriously, what do I do with one pod? The okra have been slow getting starting, but a time will come soon where I have a nice pile to chop, batter and freeze for frying later. I am still eating down last years harvest!
The potato plants were all yellowed and the new leaves were yellowing right away, so I went ahead and pulled them out. This last batch had slightly larger potatoes than the last. I haven't checked to see if the sweet potatoes in the front yard are doing anything, but the neighborhood deer laid into them pretty heavily so I'm giving them time to recover.
|Delicious carrots! I don't even peel them before I eat them.|

|Morning harvest: 2 cucumbers, 2 eggplants, 1 squash, 1 zucchini, 1 okra|
|Oh please hurry and ripen so I can pick you!|
