Looks wonderful, SS! We're not so lucky yet, but I always look forward to a daily harvest during the summer.

I am the common laborer who tills the soil and Sweetie is the gardener with the green thumb.

Shucken time

Savannah Smoker,

Thank you for the thank you note ...

Let me ask you, how are you going to prepare these stunning veggies ?

I normally prepare mine with Evoo drizzled, sprinkled with Sea Salt and drizzled with a tad of Lemon and garnished with a few fresh herbs, under oven broiler, as we do not have a BBQ in the Loft Apartment in the middle of the Capital of Madrid Metropolis ...

Have a lovely Monday ...
Ciao,
Margi.

If not brazing or using in a stew and soup about the same as you. Might add fresh crack pepper and a tab of garlic power.

Savannahsmoker--I'm envious! Our corn is only about 4 inches high, the pea plants are blooming, the first crop of radishes are being eaten, as is garden lettuce, green onions, and the first of the Swiss Chard. We won't see tomatoes, zucchini, or beans until mid-July. (I'm hoping to dig potatoes for potato salad for Canada day--the plants are looking mighty fine.)We were lucky this year--April and May weren't too wet so we were able to get in the gardens and plant early. The corn even got in before the end of May. In the meantime, the only thing I get to do in the gardens is pull weeds!

Good looking garden produce. I am so impressed and inspired. I have a question though...has anyone tried to grow celery? How do you prepare your soil? I grew mine from the roots i chopped off the market bought celery and it does not grow even though i water it everyday.
