I started to harvest the marrowfat peas; my best harvest so far - if we're lucky we can make a meal out of them ;-)

Now that I stopped trying to have a flower garden, they come out everywhere! For three years on end I sowed Sweet Williams - no result at all - and now they are everywhere, in all the colours of the rainbow!

Annie, those ears of corn really are beautiful.

I am a little envious that you can harvest corn already.  Even though i love my climate.  Until last week it was barely warm enough to plant corn. 

Like much of the west, the past few days have been hot, not just warm.  But still feeling fortunate. 

Okra probably won't make it.  Maybe try again next year.  The little seedlings just sulked and now appear to be dying.

Tomatoes just starting to take off.

Planting some bean plants today, and a short-season cantaloupe.  I started the seeds a week or 2 ago in containers.

Harvested multiplier onions yesterday, and the first of the garlic.  They are curing / drying in the garage.  Didn't want them to 'cook' in the sun.

Annie, I just saw your photo of glass gem corn. It is so pretty.

Annie, I don't see our photo of glass gem corn. I Googled it and see how pretty it is. I didn't get any seeds in the ground this year ... too busy killing cancer cells.

Thanks, Sentient, for the recipes. It is cheaper than lady bugs. I wonder how they will do with soap? Also, isn't vinegar a plant killer? I will not use it until I do a little testing.

I also like the variety in the kernel colors Annie.  Beautiful.

A rather measly harvest, but I am thrilled nonetheless.  Here is the glass gem corn I grew! It's a popcorn, but I think I will save it for seed and decoration.  I love the variety in the kernel colors.

Randall- that's amazing.  I just bought raspberries at the store (my husband's favorite) and felt I got such a great deal because they were 'only' $2.50 for 6 ounces.  Enjoy!

7 GALLONS!  What a great harvest!
