The harvests keep rolling in!! summer is definitely here with some heat and humidity that my peppers and tomatoes have really loved!
This weeks harvest is all about variety. Included in the harvest is the 3 heads of test garlic I mentioned last week that were dry enough for our liking. I also harvested the final 2 heads of Red Cross Butterhead lettuce. One of them is pictured here:
We also got down the basil (see below) and Gail made our first batch of pesto cubes!

The dry beans and min-zucchini have had some critter issues so we will see if we get a harvest from them. The bush beans were so ravaged that I pulled them before they could anything. It's a constant battle against bugs, critters, and the weather. What's a gardener to do?!
