Leeks and a Golden Beet
Sunny, very breezy, and 20 degrees today.
One of the eggplants that shriveled up and turned brown after I doused it with my terrible aphid potion has sprouted new leaves and is recovering. It's a shame we don't have a longer season - I might have been able to get an eggplant out of this one after all!
I can't bring myself to remove the little eggplants on this plant (two in this picture) even though I know they won't grow any larger. They're pretty cute. Maybe next year...
Mid-summer, I planted about 10 Golden Beet seeds. Here is the first one of those beets.
Some of the leeks I harvested today. I sliced them, triple-bagged them, and put them in the freezer. Tomorrow I will give some to my chiropractor, along with a white tomato and some beets. Hope he likes vegetables.
In the Belly of the Beet. (Sounds like a thriller)
Saj in the plant room enjoying the first sunshine we've had in two days.
Some Tene's Bean pods I strung on thread to hang to dry.
