What's Peaking in Your Belmont Garden?

It's only May and I've already got an incredible crop of artichokes, red cabbage and celery. Blueberries are a few weeks away. Tell us what spring crops you've been harvesting in your Belmont garden.

Are you growing some tomatoes that would make an organic gardener swoon? Are your strawberries gorgeous? Do your peppers pop?

Tell us what's working for you in your garden so far this spring....and better yet, upload some photos of your bounty.

Winter things are still producing while the summer things are wannabees still. I am reaping the rewards of red and yellow onions, shallots, softneck and hardneck garlic (and garlic scapes) spinach, chard, kale. My Zephyr zucchini, blueberries and strawberries are not far behind, but the tomatoes, blackberries and gypsy and padrone peppers have quite a way to go. Bless the herb garden which always delivers.

Ah, yes, the herbs always deliver. I am planting some "cinnamon basil" this weekend (used in Thai and Chinese dishes). Linda...are you still participating in CSA?

Yes, I am still hosting the Fifth Crow Farm CSA which just started last week. We have 16 Belmont families participating this year. And, of course, it always delivers the most beautiful and fresh produce week to week. All I do is supplement it from my garden with things they cannot grow in the cool Pescadero climate. If anyone is interested in joining they should go to the Fifth Crow Farm website.

Thanks Linda....I think it's time for another CSA article. Will be in touch.

Unfortunately, the only thing peaking in my garden is inertia. Hats off to the others.
