Backyard Garden Update

The Phoenix area has different seasons than the normal 4 season climates.  This is a great time of year for growing.  Below are more current pictures from our little garden box.  Jay is planning on putting in a larger garden space for me on our West wall so that it will be shaded after noon during the summers.  Really looking forward to that!

Tom Thumb Butter lettuce
Snow Peas, empty blossoms were ones we ate already
Baby tomatoes starting to ripen
Broccoli off shoots
Carrot tops
Flat Leaf Parsley
This is a head of organic lettuce that I picked up at the Farmers Market this past Saturday.  It was $2.50.  That's a teaspoon in front of it for scale. WOW!

Happy Eating!
