The first vegetable harvested and eaten this summer: peas. This week we've enjoyed luscious, juicy green peas. The sublime pleasure of eating raw peas right in the garden has been indulged this year. My four year old has declared peas as his all-time favorite food. He ravenously devoured peas too immature for harvest. He salivated over the fat, juicy ones. After checking every day for weeks to watch them grow, he relished every morsel of his peas.
The second harvest was a small about of an herb: cilantro. Exactly one of the plants I thought lost was the second to produce for the table. I am delighted that the herb part of the garden is doing well, even if it's just the one. Now, I only need to weed and watch and enjoy the early summer days's growth.
