The middle of May is a beautiful time in the garden.
The blue iris are in full bloom.
The first vegetables that we harvest are Pink Beauty radishes — both spicy and sweet.
We also eat the radish greens sautéed in a little olive oil.
The Swiss chard is also greening up and ready to be thinned. We eat the leaves prepared the same way as the radish greens. After they’re sautéed we might use them in an omelet.
Charlie built a pea trellis here.
He added more strings in the middle to allow all of the vines sufficient space to climb.
My favorite is still the iris.
The whites will be coming on soon.
