Harvest Monday for real

Almost all of dinner's vegetable mass is from the garden. Three kinds of kale (thanks, Michelle, the Lark's Tongue is doing well), a few beets and carrots from the front bed. As an aside, the neighbors
are not partaking enough of that bed. Better enlarge the sign.

I probably could have found enough potatoes to make mashed potatoes for tonight, too, if I had remembered. At any rate, we're eating and I'm cleaning out that front bed.

You can see many more harvest posts at Daphne's Dandelions today (and every Monday).

Perhaps if you put up a sign that says "DO NOT TOUCH THE VEGETABLES" they would disappear more quickly. :)

Glad the kale is doing well for you. I'm of mixed mind about it. It was tasty, but it was so robust that I couldn't keep up and it got huge and then it got full of aphids. Perhaps one plant would be enough for me and then I might be happier with it.

More beans are sprouting!

Don't you just love it when a large portion of a meal is from your own backyard?! It just makes me unreasonably happy when that occurs. :D

I've found if I tell my townhouse mates that they can go out and pick something, they won't do it. But they are happy to take anything that I pick. I think they are afraid to touch anything.

Want some oats for your hens? I have an embarrassing amount of whole organic oats. Please take some!
