This week we got 2 beets (8 oz.), some handfuls of snow peas (8 oz.) and 1 lb. of swiss chard.

8 oz. in 2 beets! The greens are in the fridge.

1 lb. of swiss chard

The beets were cooked in the oven until they were soft. They were sweet and earthy! Half of the chard was sauteed with garlic and olive oil for dinner last night. SO GOOD!!!

And now for some random garden photos:

the new mesclun is growing very slowly. I think it is due to the heat.

Let’s take a look at how those free pepper and tomato plants I got are doing. Here is the bed 5 minutes after I transplanted into it.

immediately after transplant - 13 tomato plants and 4 bell pepper plants.

same bed, same number of tomato plants, +1 chocolate bell pepper plant (so now 4 yellow bell and 1 choco bell)

2 weeks after transplanting (1 week after for the choco pepper). It will be time to hook up the Florida Weave this week, I believe.

eggplants - there are tiny buds forming on 2 of them, so maybe flowering will start soon!

romas (?) in the ground.

blurry carrots and spinach sprouts

the 5 pepper plants in the tomato pepper bed

yard long beans - they were looking a little yellow so they got some food yesterday.

one ball squash sprouts - they will need to be thinned and the extra seedling planted somewhere else.

I can’t stop staring at all of the green tomatoes. It is almost as though I am willing them to turn red before my very eyes. So far, only failure. It is only a matter of time, however!
