Tip Of The Iceberg

Here’s just a fraction of the cucumbers growing from my three plants. They’re Mideast Prolific cukes from Seeds of Change, and despite the 90-degree weather we’ve been having lately, they’re surprisingly sweet. Guess who’s making cucumber salad for tonight’s supper side dish?

This is the first batch of beans harvested. They’re destined for my daughter’s tummy tonight.

The zinnias are the second batch I’ve cut from my thriving flower patch. The first lasted nearly two weeks before wilting. That’s with just plain water for nourishment. Sure can’t say that about store-bought flowers. The sunflowers are from Seed Savers Exchange’s Sunflower Mixture.

We’ve enjoyed only a few ripe tomatoes but bunches will be ready soon. Sweet corn and bell peppers are close behind.
