First harvest in your kitchen garden

First harvest in your kitchen garden

by Green Essentials

One of the most wonderful times in a kitchen garden is the time when you begin to see the first harvest ready plants.

Part of what we probably feel is relief, that our efforts in the garden haven’t been wasted and partly a strange joy of creation (self congratulatory as it seems).

Best part is, the joy doesn’t seem to fade no matter how many gardens (or seasons) you’ve done before.

Here are a few from one of our gardens, in Socorro from Feb 2016.

Sunflower - which attracts pollinators to the garden


A small gourd beginning to develop - helps identify the female flower


The elegant Yellow Pear variety of cherry tomatoes


Young karela on the vine


Kohlrabi or Knol Kohl well on the way


A happy diverse harvest for our kitchen
