Ok, maybe you guessed correctly! They are lemon ball cucumbers. If you know me you know that each year I like to try something new in the garden. One of them just happens to be the lemon ball cukes. They are unusual, looking like bright yellow balls, and no, they don’t have a lemon taste. [...]
I can’t wait for our tomatoes to ripen. Looking forward to trying this recipe: So how does one sun-dry tomatoes? Easy.

Ok, I admit it. I never ate radishes. They were a garnish that I left on the plate. Now I grow them, and what you grow, you eat. Raw they are crunchy, peppery, spicy. Now here is the secret to dial back the intensity: wash, thinly slice them, toss with a bit of my favorite [...]
Woohoo! Sugar Daddy peas are nearly ready. They promise to be crisp, sweet and delicious and you’ll want to get twice as many as you think you’ll need. Why? Because you know you are going to eat so many of them before you even get home.
Yum… Butter head lettuce–extremely tender, delicate flavor. Its almost ready!
