Is Your Garden Producing?

While it's nice to have a year-round growing season in the Bay Area, the foggy days make for a long lag time between germination and harvest. Other regions, such as the Midwest, enjoy optimal growing conditions for at least three months straight, which yields huge vegetables in a very short amount of time. At long last, though, my garden is starting to produce a lot of veggies. I'm currently picking wax beans, snow peas, grape tomatoes, and my new favorite, serpentine squash, which is also called zuchetta, and has a very interesting anise-like flavor when eaten raw.

Yes: peppers, tomatoes, carrots, potatoes, lettuce, peas, radishes, broccoli, and cucumbers are/were all in our garden this year. That seems like a lot considering we downsized our garden this year! I'm hoping to see my dad soon to take advantage of his bumper crop of beans - we didn't plant any this year. In fairness, he did start our broccoli, pepper, and tomato plants, otherwise we probably wouldn't have done those. (new baby + FT job = no time!)

Flowers, yes. Fruits, no, as my dwarf trees are still too young.
