saturday summer garden

another warm weekend here in Lex.  the tomatoes needed some serious tidying up.  sherry managed to harvest a tasty load of veg including okra, tomatoes, carrots, ground cherries (a new favorite), raspberries, beets, and peppers.

some local peaches from the farmers market topped things off for dessert – peach cake in the cast iron skillet.

we also discovered an empty bottle launched over our fence into the Jerusalem artichokes.

finally, a bonus visit from the kids at SEEDS (a seedleaf and kid’s cafe initiative teaching kids to grow and sell their own veg) who sold their produce from our driveway.

It's amazing how much can be grown in a relatively small space! What a great deal--$1/pound for fresh, homegrown veggies from the SEEDS kids! Wish I was close enough to make a purchase.

Nice one! But okra? "Ew ew okra" as I affectionately call it :P
