Yes, finally the first corn of the season. Denny and I each had 3½ ears for lunch and he wants more for dinner. I want beans. Today we have young tender beans – green and yellow.
This first corn is very good - the ears are small but the kernels are big. We have 9 staggered plantings of corn so far with more to come. We plant several different varieties mostly butter and sugar and also our popular gourmet-style Mr. Mirai variety. The hot nights and rain have been good.
Peppers are just starting – we will be picking soon. Sweet, Italian hot, jalapenos are all looking good. Tomatoes are coming soon. We have 4 kinds of cabbage. The St. Nicholas Ukrainian festival is July 25 from noon to 8pm. Their cabbage rolls will be made with Janowski cabbage – the food sells out by mid afternoon so go early! So keep the date.
*On Saturday July 24, we will be closing early at 4pm for a big family event. I know many of you come just before dinner but on that day please come earlier so you don’t miss out on what you need. And on the following morning it will take us a little time to get set up again.
PS I have whole plants of catnip that I am drying naturally upside down. If anyone has a need for quantities of catnip please let me know.
