Garden Harvests

It's still early here in Michigan to be harvesting too many things from the fact, we're still PLANTING in the garden!  Every week we try to add a few more plants/seeds to our yard and garden.  Things are growing ip everywhere and it's looking like a good year.  The only thing we have left to plant is some pumpkins.  We'll also add a few more radishes, carrots and lettuces later on this summer for a fall harvest.

But for now....

We're havesting strawberries.  And lettuce.  And radishes.  And rhubarb.  And the first peas of the season yesterday.  Yummy!

I also harvested my first crop of chamoille yesterday.  It's in my dryer now, and the house smells so fantastic!  I can't wait until it's ready to blend into my own special chamoille tea blend!

Yeah, we're in zone 5b, I think. I know if we were about 10 miles north we'd be in zone 4. So things are just starting around here. The big farms are harvesting pickles and things (albeit a bit early) but since we got in late we're about a week behind our normal harvests, which are just starting.
