We have had some heat in my parts of late, and things are finally starting to grow and ripen. Cucumbers and zucchini are coming out of the garden at a steady pace this week. Tomatoes are coming along nicely.....the anticipation of a sun-warmed garden tomato is growing by the day!
I am diggin' these Baby Persian Cukes ("Green Fingers"), growing on a small A-frame trellis, so far they are behaving and staying within their designated area.
Another new variety in the garden this year is a crinkly leaved basil. The flavor is more mild than your standard sweet basil making it wonderful to put on just about anything, especially a grilled cheese or ham sandwich. YUM! (There is also Thai, Pistou, and Sweet Basil out in the garden to keep it company.)

I am ready to start digging for new potatoes any day now, not sure if I will find anything worth robbing though. Raspberries will be next harvest list, can't wait. HAPPY GARDENING!
