Noon hour brought a few clouds, saving today’s Basin’s Backyard Gardeners from full sun in the high heat and humidity.
We harvested a really good variety today. Not a lot of most things, but signs of bountiful days to come. All told, we collected nine pounds of lettuce, cilantro (the end of those plants for the year), basil, parsley, tomatoes, eggplant, banana peppers, a bell pepper, beans, peas, kohlrabi, and a couple little cucumbers.
Crystal Rafferty and Tracie Bettenhausen took the exciting veggies to Community Action Program Region VII.
We’ll have to keep an eye on the cucumbers and tomatoes. They’ll really start taking off soon.
