This year planting came late. Spring came late, very late. I’m not so sure we even got a spring, we just held on to winter until school let out then it was summer. Consequently I was a little worried that the corn wouldn’t make it to “knee high by the 4th of July”

 

It did. Actually it’s the 1st of July and it’s already Knee High. I’m not really sure where that saying came from, but it is a good indicator of a good harvest for corn. Not to mention it’s just fun to say.

Good and bad news in the garden this week. First, we harvested the first round of peas and green beans. We ate the peas on Monday night – tastiest peas I’ve ever eaten, even though I didn’t cook them quite long enough. The green beans were Wednesday night and just as fresh as I remember from growing up with Grandma’s garden.

 

A quick tangent. I once got grounded because I spent the afternoon eating the beans out of Grandma’s garden and didn’t have room for dinner. Can you believe it – I actually got in trouble for EATING my veggies.
