Let the harvest begin!

Yes, I know it is still way too early in the season... but you see that red cherry tomato in the photo below? I just ate it.

Ahhhhhhh. I could have let it ripen another day or two but it was ready enough and I was ready enough.

As you can see, the eggplant is quite prolific this year. Baba ganoush city. And there's always imam bayeldi (if you are very good).

Zucchini blossoms. Hooray!

I also have a number of failed plants and lots of scorched rose leaves and sundry items that need to be yanked and tossed. But even so, lots of loveliness no matter where one turns. And all but a few roses have new leaves coming out.

I adore beets. Bill grew them in California. Fresh beets, roasted - heaven! And lettuce served within half an hour of harvesting does carry more of the earth and reality with it.

At least we can share virtually, Margaret. Happy dining to you and your family!
