Garden Bounty Begins ~ Summer Heat
Today I picked a bowl full of organic green and wax beans, a bowl of red potatoes, a few small heads of broccoli, and about 3 kohlrabi - all for dinner.
The cucumbers are starting to come in and so are my straight neck yellow squash and zucchini. I see some roma tomato plants, and all of my pepper plants producing too.
It's in the 90's again here, and thunderstorms are brewing again. I'm praying the winds are low, and the barns hold together. We do need the rain. The garden is a bit dry today.
We are still getting about 2 quarts of goat's milk a day, and will have more when the buckling is weaned. I am enjoying the raw milk, and especially not having to take a load of plastic milk jugs to the recycling center.
