Yesterday I harvested 2 pea pods. Prof ate one and I ate one. I wish there had been more, because they were delicious! There are about a dozen more blossoms or so. We won’t have enough to eat as a side dish, but we will get some to snack on. Next year I plant many more peas than I did this year.

I have to say, I am feeling a bit discouraged. I wish I were bringing in more produce already. I know, when the time is right, we will have many tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants. The black beans are blossoming. We won’t get a ton of those either, but we will get a few. We might get a head or 2 of broccoli, but I am starting to think it might be too hot out for them to finish off properly. I really want to see what the buckets of potatoes are doing, but I don’t think it is time yet.

I have figured out how to try and solve my problem of no early harvests. I need to build a nice cold frame so I can over winter things, as well as start things outdoors sooner. This is my homework.

Beyond the 2 pea pods, I also harvested a few grams of lemon balm and a few grams of cilantro this past week. They are pictured in the post below about the homestead chicken dinner.
