In order to show you a nice picture of my garden I avoided the spot with the dead pea plants and lots of weeds. You’re looking at carrots in the back, potato plants crowding the rhubarb which will someday be crowding my asparagus. The last time I “gardened” was when my mom put “pick beans” on my list of chores for the day. Considering that, I’ve felt really blessed by this garden. I would choose to play in the garden over cleaning and cooking most any day.
Wednesday I picked those two buckets of produce. It really equals out to two ice cream buckets of beans, a few pathetic looking tomatoes and a lot of some type of pepper. My garden missed the memo that I wanted to be able to make pico de gallo with what it produced. The cilantro grew great but blossomed and turned into coriander long ago. I now have peppers coming out my ears but most tomatoes the seem like they’ll wait until August to turn red.
Beans are under the tomatoes and peppers in the picture, so I don’t have THAT many peppers. I just have more than I know how to handle. Any great ideas? Would you like some? I could give you some whole coriander to go with them too; and if that’s not enough to make you want some, I could get some zucchini from someone and throw that in too. Seriously.
