The Garden's Bounty

The organic garden has already been good to us.  We've polished off the radishes, spinach, wintered-over carrots and chard, and fresh bok choy.  In their empty beds, we now have the beans and corn planted.  The tomatoes are setting nicely, the herbs are healthy and bushy.
The old saying is "Peas and New Potatoes on the 4th of July."   We dug our first potatoes yesterday, and they are beautiful.  Not only that, but just lightly steamed they melted in our mouths.  YUM.  The romaine and butter lettuce is full to overflowing in the garden and we can't give it away fast enough.  The onions and garlic are especially good.    How blessed we are.
If you live in the city, please stop by and help us eat our bounty.

Wow! You can't beat fresh garden veggies! 10x the nutritional value of store-bought, I'll bet!
