The garden seems to be at its peak with bolted cilantro, fat carrots, cabbage heads, and tomatoes around every corner. Yesterday, while working in the garden, Trevor informs me that we have eighteen tomato plants. “Eighteen?! There’s no way we eighteen… I only planted four!” We walked around the garden together pointing with our dirty fingers only to find we had twenty tomato plants! TWENTY! Geez, you would never guess we could fit so much into a small 13′ x 22′ foot garden.
Look close and you can see little Brussels sprouts forming in the creases of the leaves. Freshly cut and drying cilantro will give me coriander (seeds) to use as a spice as well as seeds to plant in the spring!
