Strolling through the garden early in the morning brings about surprises and a sense of satisfaction.
There is always something new that has bloomed, sprouted, grown, or come ripe. The best mornings are the ones right after a good thunderstorm. We are talking jungle growth!
Here in the deep south we gardeners are truly blessed. We get an early spring garden, we have the opportunity to have a double summer planting, and we have a fall/winter garden.
I am taking full advantage and just sowed my second summer planting.
My second round includes German Okra, DeMarge Lettuce, radishes.
Lazy Housewife Pole Beans, Baby Round Zucchini, Lady Lucy Tomatoes,
Chocolate Beauty Pepper, and several varieties of flowers.
I just planted these last week and, thanks to the thunder storms rich with lightning and rain, we have seeds sprouting and charging on!
Mr. Muscles’ jalapeno pepper plant is producing so well that I am hoping to find a good jalapeno jelly recipe to try.
After battling an armadillo that kept disturbing my Black Zucchini plants, the zucchini are growing and producing like gangbusters.
I have been shredding and freezing a lot of zucchini to make brownies and bread. Warm slices of zucchini bread on a cold winter’s day just warms the body all the way to your toes. Mmmmm! It also is fantastic to thicken up a soup or a stew and adds more veggies.
Did I mention the fresh cucumbers and Yellow Pear tomatoes we are enjoying almost daily?
