the vegetables of my labor

We picked our first sugar snap pea from the garden today, and as expected, it was fantastic. My almost- 2 y/o thought it needed something and dipped his in the sandbox, but my 3 y/o and I enjoyed it. We also sampled some lettuce and its definitely time to eat it as the bottom of the curly type (I don't know what kind it is but I'm thinking Black Seeded Simpson) was bitter. The other, romaine looking one was fantastic, though- mild and almost peppery.

There are buds for peppers on the pepper plants, and that first strawberry is almost completely red. The basil I put in with the eggplants looks a lot bigger already and it smells fantastic.

This is so cool.
