We planted a garden this season, not to get a bumper crop but to watch the change from seed to plant to fruit. It has been fun to water, watch and wait. This morning the cucumber plants flower were open, the tomato plant had one small fruit and the basil is just flourishing.
We are also participating in a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) this year. I thinks it a great way to support local farmers, try new thing and to know where your food comes from. I have to find a good recipe for garlic scapes and decide what to do with Bok Choy this week.
In our garden the boys are most looking forward to the watermelon growing and I the tomato. Is there really anything better than a ripe, juice tomato??????
