We will have a yellow squash to add to our dinner tonight! We picked our first one today. There is another one growing and should be ready before long.
We've been enjoying potatoes. MK doesn't want to let them grow to be very big -- she wants to eat them now! At least she is enjoying them.
The tomatoes are getting bigger but are still green. More of them are showing up, too.
We've been enjoying the leaf lettuce. They look so pretty when they haven't been beaten down by the rain. Washing each leaf sure does become tedious at times, but we enjoy eating them. I'm thinking about head lettuce next year.
The carrots are about an inch long now, so we are still waiting on them to grow. We are hoping for watermelon some time, but don't see any signs of them yet.
We went to the downtown farmer's market Saturday. I was a bit disappointed. There didn't seem to be much produce to choose from . . . and it seemed expensive. $1.00 for a small tomatoe seemed like a lot to me . . . and it wasn't even a pretty tomato.
I bought a pound of rhubarb. That's 3 stalks. $2.75. I couldn't resist. I haven't had any for years. I once had rhubarb growing behind my garage in Robinson and loved picking it whenever I wanted and making miniature rhubarb cobblers.
MK didn't want me to buy the rhubarb. She had never seen it in stalks before. When I bought it, she said she didn't want me to cook it that day . . . maybe some other day. She nearly begged me not to cook it. I ignored her (of course) and cooked it, then while it was hot, put a spoon of it and some of the juice on top of strawberry swirl ice cream. Do you know, she LOVED it and asked for it several more times. Needless to say, we ate 1/2 gallon of strawberry swirl ice cream and the 3 long stalks of rhubarb in two days.
