A note from Sarah on the garden’s progress. She promises new photos soon.
“The garden is reaching out toward peak production. The tomatoes are starting to ripen, okra is putting on, peppers are loaded, eggplant is blooming (it’s the second planting), basil is doing great, winter squash is amazing, cucumbers blooming, pole beans are hanging in there. The watermelon is looking fine, sweet potatoes are starting to really take off and the darn Brussell sprouts are producing like crazy all of a sudden. I expected them to bite the bullet long ago. Finishing the last of a heat resistant lettuce, and onions are bulbing up nicely. Some of the herbs are struggling and some are happy.
Today’s lunch was an Arkansas brown rice simmered with chicken breasts, and a dish of braised okra and green beans in a fresh chunky tomato sauce seasoned with olive oil, onion, garlic, Jimmy Nardelos and fresh basil, all topped with a shake of Parmesan. WAY yummy!”
