I’ve tried growing potatoes on & off for years. This year, I’m trying again. It’s pretty easy, but it can be disappointing when blight or potato scab taint the crop. This year, I’m finding a little of both, but I’m still getting edible produce. 🙂
Nasturtium foliage is full and fun. I almost forget sometimes that flowers will eventually bloom out of it. The variety of small red, orange, and yellow blossoms are a joy to see peeking out between my squash and tomato plants. 🙂
Today, I’m grateful for beets growing in the garden.
The beet greens are getting bigger, but it’s hard to tell how big the beets might be, down in the soil. I’ve heard these greens are great in salads, so I may just have to pick one for the greens, no matter what size the beet below is. Looking forward to it. 🙂
The temperatures in New England are pushing ninety degrees. I know the Southwestern US gets hotter. But here in New England, the humidity adds to the discomfort. We never had air conditioning in our house when I was a child. The first house my husband and I bought when we got married didn’t have a.c. either. But I’m thankful that the house we’ve lived in for the past thirty years does. It’s a blessing I try not to take for granted.
