Some photos of what I'm growing this year...

Hello lovely readers!

I though that, since I haven't had the opportunity to do much cooking of late, I'd share some photos of what I'm growing this year.

Due to a lack of weekend time, my best-laid plans to construct raised 8'x4' vegetable beds went out the window in early April, and was replaced by a scaled-down container garden. I'm growing four types of tomatoes (all determinate varieties, which stay compact), zucchini, summer yellow squash, bush beans, snow peas, celery, beets, yellow onions, pickling cucumbers, arugula, and mesclun, along with basil, rosemary, parsley, sage, and two types of thyme (German and variegated lemon).

My family keeps asking how my "crop" is doing, so I asked my lovely younger sister (home from college for the summer) to use her prodigious photography skills and take some pictures! All photos in this post are (c) 2011 Kerry Flanagan.

The first tomatoes of the year

Sweet Basil (looks like some critter has been munching on this...)

Beets... Just greens now, soon to be tasty red morsels of yummyness.

Bush Beans - can't wait for fresh-picked green beans!

More to come soon!
