Just an Update

I returned from Oklahoma to find that my husband had done a great job of keeping the garden alive. While I was gone, he ate the first of the bigger ripe tomatoes, several peppers, a zucchini, and an eggplant.

The okra is a new variety, so he wasn’t sure whether it was ready; the pods are stubbier than the pods of Cajun Jewel, our usual variety. I’ve picked a small pile of the new okra to try, though, so I will soon know whether it is really ready or if some of the pods have been left too long on the plant.

Today I picked a quart or so of blueberries, and I brought in another tomato and some peppers. Amazingly, the remaining Slobolt lettuce is only a little bitter.
