it's easy being green

At least, it is this time of year. The weather has been pretty good for the garden, and it shows. Peas are going grand.

We're also harvesting basil, arugula, lettuce, and raspberries; radishes, spinach, and strawberries are done.

(Basil has come quite a ways in a month!)

But although we're still waiting for tomatoes and peppers, not quite everything is green:

Of course, Harvey is a great help, at least in intention. He hasn't yet pulled the peas off the trellis trying to pick one...

Dan, I'm so jealous of your beautiful garden. But I'm so excited we might actually get a couple things to eat out of our garden this year. Check out our blog for the update.

Well, we have reason to be jealous of you too: artichokes! And tomatoes in June! I do love the weather up here, but our growing season is none too long. Could you guys grow avocados if you wanted?
