our Charlie’s vegetable garden is growing well and starting to produce a few edibles.
The most noticeable growth are the green tops of the radishes.
But under the soil and almost bursting forth on its own is the spicy pink root.
A bunch of these Pink Beauties is like a stunning bouquet of flowers still in the bud.
We’re also harvesting last year’s leeks and onions as needed for cooking.
They’re going to seed which looks very sci-fi in the garden. In the center of the photo above is the cucumber trellis.
Charlie builds the trellises with “found and free” bamboo on which he stings climbing twine.
The cucumber plants are still small but their tendrils will soon pull them up the trellis.
Radishes, onions, cucumbers — that’s enough garden talk for today.
Is your gardening starting well this year?
