in the garden

This past week the weather has been warm and humid, with a bit of rain — exactly what the garden ordered. As a result, just about everything has been shooting up in leaps and bounds: the sunflowers grew more than a foot, pea pods began to fill up quickly, and wee zucchini seemingly burst out of nowhere. Tat soi, salad greens, radishes, and host of fresh herbs — cilantro, oregano, and basil — made their way from the garden to our plates this week, too. And the garlic scapes are almost ready to cut and grill up this weekend — can’t wait! The rest of the garden is looking a bit of a wilderness, to be frank. The late afternoon rains and lingering dampness have meant there’s been little mowing this week, but I confess there is a part of me that adores the overgrown look. 🙂
