Now that we have a backyard again, we've planted a few vegetables. We tried to pick the shadiest part of the yard to plant peas, but the recent heat wave has left them looking pretty sad. Similarly, we got no response from the carrots. But the squash, sunflowers and turnips are looking great! We went out this morning for our first harvesting. JG and I got to discuss which parts of the turnip plant we eat and why ladybugs are our friends. We picked a huge potful of turnips greens which are now in the crockpot cooking with a chicken. Woohoo!
