The melons are beginning to ripen so we were able to take our first ones to the church potluck today. I ate an orange one and I saw Ken eating a red one. Mmm good! We’ve sure missed them since last summer. We also had fresh Swiss Chard, new red potatoes and Cucumber slices. I’ve been eating a cucumber every day for my lunch. It takes about a month to get our fill of them; they are so sweet and crunchy. The steamed red potatoes were so flavorful and sweet that I ate mine without butter or even salt.
Just returned from a walk through the garden and I’ll give you a pre-view of what is ripe and we have available at the Farmers Market.
The corn is ripening and now it has nice plump cobs that are beginning to fill out; probably will be another week or so before we will eat the first corn-on-the-cob. I have eaten a few cherries though but most of them are not quite ripe. Usually they are ripe on the 4th of July; but not this year the veggies are a little late. Well I hope you enjoy the pictures; as much as I did the stroll through the garden this Sunday evening.
