the strawberries are ramping up again for another mini harvest (since these strawberries are “everbearing” they produce small, continual yields over the whole summer, instead of one, big, fat yield in june).

as of yesterday – july 23 –  two super sweet Sungold cherry tomatoes were plucked from the vine and popped into each of our mouths.  first tomatoes of the season!!

*no, i guess its not really the first harvest of the year – we’ve been bringing in loads of herbs, lettuce, and beans already (and recently: potatoes and shallots too!), but squash/zucchini and tomatoes are what really get me excited, you know?
