Tis the season…
We’ve long since lost track of the harvest. Pounds and pounds every few days. To snack, in curries, in tacos, to family, cabreses, to work, to friends, to the birds. Still they march on, and no one complains.
Guatemalan blue banana squash is new for me this year. It’s getting cozy with the volunteer sunflowers.
As one of the varieties of cow peas (with orange blossoms!) gets cozy with the volunteer amaranth.
Last week, this bean was cozy with the hose. After a week away on vacay, I’d say they’re more than cozy.
Tomorrow, I hope for uninterrupted TV time – a rarity in my home. (Go USA!) But I have plans for the long commercial break at half time…
Definitely been a lush year!
It’s still so green everywhere! I might even risk a crop change in July… The burgundy okra is too fibrous and fast growing this year. There doesn’t seem to be a “small and tender” window to harvest.
Jealous of your beans. I’m planting more legumes this year in my garden. Hoping the deer don’t like those much.
That amaranth volunteer was a misnomer from a neighbor. It’s lamb’s quarter. (And has been removed as it took up more than its fair share of sun and water.)
I’m going to plant even more black eyed peas next year. I loved growing and eating them!
Lambs quarter? Isn’t that a wild edible? I must find me some of that! Me too on the peas, especially the one with black eyes. 👀
It is purported to be a wild edible. I didn’t venture into learning how to properly eat it as we had a glut of intentional edibles this season.
