July Garden Harvest

I love going out in my garden in the morning to see what we’ll be eating today.  This is what I picked.  I also have a little spinach left, lots of kale and chard, some lettuce, basil, cilantro and onions.  I harvested the garlic last week and it’s drying out in the shed.  
We picked blueberries raspberries and strawberries to put on top of our oats for breakfast.  I also picked the first (4) ripe blackberries.  The blackberries are my favorite.  We’re going to have a big crop this year because of the heavy spring rain.  

I also picked the first ripe apricot.  Our tree is full of big ripening apricots but a good number of them are molding on the tree.  I think is due to the rains that brought me the bumper crop of blackberries.  Nature is a good example of the yin/yang concept.  Things tend to balance out.
Due to the heat that is ripening the fruit in our yard, the peas are winding down.  The peas don’t like the heat so the plants are starting to dry up.  We’re still picking a few each day but they won’t be around much longer.
I also picked my first green bean today.  It’s a French bean from seed I bought in Paris a few years back.
