Composting nourishes the soil, fuels growth, and restores vitality simply through the breakdown and recycling of organic matter. In this Weekly (Com) Post, I’ll break down what nourished, fueled, and restored our week!
I feel like this snap pea flower is like, “I see you!”
When I’m not eating peas fresh off the vine, they are going into stir fry!
Teensy ‘Arcadia’ broccoli head.
One of our all-time favorite sights! The first artichoke buds. Matt and I will eat these steamed with garlic butter every day, all summer long and never get sick of them.
‘Royalty Purple’ bush bean flower.
Lettuce surviving the heat. ‘Muir’ (middle) is a particularly heat tolerant Batavian lettuce.
On the other hand, the lime tree is loving the heat. It’s potted as it could never survive our harsh winters outdoors, but it definitely prefers being outside.
Tomatillo plant also soaking up the heat.
‘Chinese 5 Color’ heirloom pepper. You can see the faint purple in its leaves. When it sprouted, its first leaves were deep purple. Still kickin myself for not snapping a pic.
A few days later, the first cherry tomato flowers appeared.
Morning dew on the corn.
