too.much.fiber.

I haven't really been talking about what's going on in the garden like I wanted to or I should, and I certainly haven't been taking enough pictures. But what I can tell you is things are ripe and it's been awesome. I've harvested 4 or 5 zucchinis, 3 cucumbers, 2 Early Girl tomatoes, a big handful of Yellow Pear tomatoes, and today we picked our first Super Sweet 100 tomato, the little cherry, which Max promptly ate.

I've pulled out the old cauliflower and lettuce plants and planted more lettuce, spinach and beets, as well as some sugar snap peas, which came up super fast. I planted them 8 days ago and they are already about 2 inches tall! I mixed some organic fertilizer with water and soaked them in that before planting, so I'll bet that's why. Still, 8 days! Crazy.

My dear friends who came this weekend brought me produce from the farm and I've eaten half of it, easily. I might explode from the fiber, but it was so good. Tonight I made whole wheat rotini with Alfredo sauce, and sauteed zucchini, carrots and yellow pear tomatoes in olive oil, and then made a salad too. Yum.

Finally, I got my Nintendo DS today. It is SO fun. I have more to say about spending money, which I'll post tomorrow, but I just needed to talk produce for a bit. Too many tomatoes will make a girl a little loopy.

I would love to see a photo of your garden. I do not have an ideal garden space on my property. We tried a garden, and grew tomatoes successfully, but nothing else.

I agree with Amy - we need pictures
