Harvest Monday on Sunday

This is the "I go away for the weekend and what?" version.

Thirteen eggs (no one is checking in my absence), the first ripe Katy apricot, and what turned into a couple of pints' worth of pickled yellow wax beans.

Apparently it really is summer.

They'll eat 'em but they don't gather 'em, sounds familiar! It's almost summer here, I just set out 45 pepper plants today. Grow, babies, grow. My first two Italian beans have sprouted, I'm crossing my fingers that I haven't killed the rest of them.

Strawberries, lettuce, red orach, agretti and brocoli rabe greens are being harvested on a daily basis. Soon, zucchini blossoms so that we don't get too much squash. We planted a new variety for us - some kind of sicilian white zuke.

BTW, we are finally working our way through the peppers we got from you last summer (we pickled them). Every once in a while we get one that is quite zippy!!

I planted a Kentucky Wonder Wax bean for the first time this year. I'm hoping it will contrast well with the regular KW beans. They will look good together in pickles. Now watch them never put out beans at the same time. Your wax beans look gorgeous.

Thanks again for those pickled beans. I'd love to have your recipe. And of course, we'll give you back your fancy jar.
