Harvesting for Breakfast

Welcome to the completed spring & summer garden!

Today we planted the red bell peppers (see them in the front row) and eight tomato plants, a mix of Sungold, little orange delicious cherry tomatoes, and Celebrity, a larger red tomato with break-resistant skin.

They'll be growing strong over the next few weeks, with a first harvest probably in early July.

Speaking of first harvests, today we ate our first garden greens for breakfast! The mustard greens are enormous, and this morning we finally cut off some of the outside leaves and sauteed them up with some eggs.

I'd started some bread dough last night and baked it up this morning as well, so we had mustard greens from the garden, eggs from the chickens next door, and bread baked in our own oven.
