Garden Bloggers Harvest Day in May

This post is late in coming, but I wanted to save face and let you know that there is something I can harvest from my modest veggie patch. I have not put any effort into the garden this month and yet it still produces happily. I know I promised last month that I would toil and sow seeds, but alas! I might as well have gone fishing!! That’s how much I did in the garden, but I am quite surprised what I can collect. Let me share with you my May Harvest!

My lemon tree is a wonder and the priceless fruit is always welcome in my kitchen. I have made tons of lemon cordial and the salad dressings are never with out freshly squeezed lemons.

Fresh Lemons – love them!

My broad beans are starting – I use the tips in my salads. Super delicious!

My main veggie crop is lettuce. It seems to do really well in my patch!

I have sweet basil all over – in purple too! Makes for  a very pretty garden fill!

My tomatoes are not ripe yet. They are now going out of season, but we still have a few warm days left. Lets hope we can harvest them soon!

Something different in my garden. We don’t really eat Eggplant, but I am loving them in my garden!

I am just loving wild rocket in my dishes! It brings any meal to life! AND they are easy to grow.

Hey!! I found a cucumber !! I did not know it was sill alive! Guess what I had for lunch today!

And last but not least…. my multitude of herbs. I have lemon balm, mint and thyme I use regularly.

I hope all my harvesting friends have a bigger basket of goodies than I have!!

Country living is the best! Being a true spirit of the earth, my garden is all about vegetables and fruit trees and herbs and chickens roaming free. I was keen to really start gardening when we moved to Philadelphia in 2005, but not your typical suburban-type garden – sterile and bug-free! I wanted an edible garden.

My mouth was watering during this post. No kidding, your shots look like those in a culinary magazine that tickle the culinary senses. The lemons especially. Love that photo.
