Early Summer Harvest

In addition to the full share CSA from Lancaster Farm Fresh that I share with my housemate, I have two 8X4 raised beds that I constructed in the abandoned yard next to my house. This year I really got on the early planting, and this early attention has yielded great early summer crops. I thought I’d share a few photos with you:

I grew heirloom Lincoln Peas from Landreth seeds – so sweet!

It’s not secret that I love beets. These beautiful heirlooms grew gorgeous, with very sweet greens.

I broke up two heads of organic garlic late last fall and planted the individual cloves before the ground froze. By summer solstice, I had these gorgeous heads of new garlic, which I braided and hung in my pantry.
