Planting for our Summer Menu

The heirloom lettuces have been very productive all spring and we are now beginning to use the last of them. The arugula began to flower so we are making pesto, but that was some terrifically dank stuff. ( in a good way). We may plant more soon.  The beets are still going strong and should be producing in a few weeks. The red scallions are delicious raw, grilled or pickled. The peas are taking off, which is interesting since we just tossed some peas in the garden one day when we were shucking and they’re doing great, whereas the  transplants didn’t make it. Now we’re all set with support for the vines. This week we’ll taste the pac choy for the first time.

New for Summer:

About 6 varieties of tomatoes, zucchini and yellow squash, eggplant, sweet red peppers, hot peppers, a few fava beans and lots of basil.
