The garden looks pretty good at this time of year. Some things are already being harvested (radishes, lettuce, spinach, and broccoli), and the rest of the plants look good. The weeds aren’t too bad yet and the bugs are just getting their bearings. This week’s exciting news is that we got some broccoli. We have never grown it before, but it was easy, fast and in the end, delicious. It looks like we will get one nice head of broccoli for plant (we have five), but we think there may be a small secondary head or two that form just below the cut. Here’s to hoping.

Today I also planted another half row of bush beans (Derby) (about 2.5 weeks from the first planting). I hope to do this two more times at two to three week intervals.
