As summer rolls on so does the garden. The garlic that was planted last fall was picked in the middle of the week by the four week Leadership Crew. We managed to harvest just shy of ten pounds of garlic. Wicked!!!! Onions and potatoes are looking nice and green. We planted a monster lettuce bed, when we cut just a fraction of the lettuce, we got 10 gallons. Had enough greens?? The Kale and Swiss shard are also looking nice a rich with their big leaves. Cannot wait put this into a stir fry! The peas made there last hurrah. For the season so far we have pulled roughly 15 pounds of sweet little pods. Wild raspberries surround the garden and the black berries are soon to fallow. Last year the best crop was the good old green bean. These little guys are just now starting to make their show. Day in and day out the beans seem to be appearing out of thin air, every other day a large bag of bean gets picked from the fields. This year with more bean plants I expect that soon enough we will be rolling around in a bath of beans. The Zucchini is also exploding faster than the Dodge staff can pick them. Veggie after veggie is exploding out of this grand garden. BOO YA.
Summer is rolling along faster than a big rock down a steep hill, hope everyone has a great day and gets to see the sun and a plant grow, this is 3-1 goose clear with Camp Dodge Journal #3
