This week's eats

We had another tasty week at the garden. Next week is promising to be even better and I am doing my best to make certain that all of our weeks are tasty from here on out.

I won't bore you with all of them, but the zucchini was abundant this week. You may be wondering why I don't let them get bigger; I just like them best when they are about this size, they are tastier. We have a couple that got away from me on the plants so you'll probably see those next week.

One of four zucchinis

We had some strawberries. Farmer D doesn't seem to care much about them but they sure make me happy and I love to share.

We had nice fixin's for a good salad in this bunch:

3 sister tomato, purple bell pepper, pear cherry tomatoes, and 3 pepperocinis

We harvested our first pink lemonade lemon yesterday but have not tried it yet. We'll keep you posted. 

It's a tiny ear of corn, but it was perfect.
We're early yet for corn and I just know Farmer D's pollination  technique made this first ear way better than it would have been otherwise. I ate it raw about 10 seconds after taking the photo. It was delicious.

Gidget was so excited about the harvest she was floating on air.
