i’m harvesting a handful of beans every day along with lettuce + herbs enough for 2 generous salads. throw in 3-5 new ripe strawberries a day (not bad for the little guys’ first season) and the harvest has definitely begun in the garden. last saturday, ross and i broke out the grill and made an amazing meal of grilled rib-eye (from a friend’s farm in blacksburg), grilled peppers/onions/our own green beans tossed in EVOO and herbs, and a heaping side of our own salad. now all i need is a tomato to make me feel complete.
speaking of tomatoes, the tomatoes, squash and peppers aren’t ready yet, but they’re getting there.
i’ve decided that late june/early july is my favorite time of year for the flowers in the front yard. nearly everything is in bloom and there’s so much color up there!
