The juice of the day is just carrots and orange. Usually I have this in winter, but I had a couple of oranges to use and it is refreshing (it has been hot!)
In the garden: we ate all our first corn, and it was sweet and delicious, but I now would like to ask a question to all gardeners out there: when can I pick the second ears of corn? The are still so small...
Zucchini: the ratio in my garden seems to be three yellow for every green one! This happens every year, I wonder why the yellow plant produces lots, and the green one doesn't!
Tomatoes: after a good start only the cherry tomatoes are doing well, the plum tomatoes and beef tomatoes… well, both plants got sick and only gave me a few tomatoes in the end (and the beef are quite small). Maybe I should plant them in boxes in the sun next year! Fortunately I have a zillion plants of cherry tomatoes (mostly self seeding) coming up now, so I am picking about a dozen a day now and the harvest should increase in the next few weeks. The yellow and black cherry tomatoes are not producing yet, but I did plant them later, so I am keeping my fingers crossed for a few more weeks of summer!
Off topic, but let's celebrate, I got over 150,000 page views in the last month :-)!
