Micro Harvest

Container gardening this summer:  Almost every day for the last month or so (minus the vacation), I’ve had all the cherry tomatoes I wanted from my container garden.  The carrots, despite luxurious tops, only made tiny taproots (tasty though).  Lettuce matures hopefully in another week.  Still, fun, healthy, and tasty.

Here’s today’s pick.  Perhaps the cucumbers would have grown more, but the vines are looking sad.  Also, early this spring I noticed LOTS and LOTS of blackberries blossoms in underbrush nearby.  So below are some blackberries drying on a cloth before the final cull to get the bad/unripe ones.  My mom can bake blackberry pies, so these are going into the freezer to await their destiny.

Blackberries dry on a cloth before one final cull and their destiny as blackberry pies.  And tomorrow's veggies.
