Despite having a stomach bug for the past ten days, the garden continues to progress. I picked the green beans clean and pulled out the stalks as production had decreased to just a few errant beans. The second plants started from seed are about a foot high and ready to be planted in the garden tomorrow. Tomatoes and cherry tomatoes are still flowering but no fruit (vegg? - the great debate rages on) yet. The baby cucumbers have started coming in with a handful that I plan to pick tomorrow. I hope the rest develop quickly so pickles can be made. The asparagus bean and Thai eggplant are growing lovely and green - not sure what to expect as this is the first time I have grown these. As for the herbs - the parsley continues to flourish; the rosemary started from seed is just beginning to poke through; the sage and thyme seem to be recovering well.
Pictures of it all soon, but for now I am off to meet my secret love for a farewell meeting as (1) I finished painting the bedroom and some accents are needed and (2) the kids are out of school for summer vacation this Thursday and my dalliance will have to come to a heartbroken end (at least for a bit). I might even have some beach pictures next week as FIL has offered us his beach condo for this weekend to celebrate the end of school.
Have a good Monday!
