This photo shows the latest harvest I did. I picked a lot of Cilantro (R) and Dill (L) in the early afternoon. Then I gave it to my wifes restaraunt as they use a lot. I still have more that isn't ripe for my pickling and slasa making later. What all have you picked and or eaten from your gardens so far? HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

I love cilantro! You have some yummy looking stuff! I've picked green beans and peas from my garden. The beans were delicious and I'll eat the peas tomorrow. I have to plant more so I'll have some later but I'm running out of space. I didn't know I would need a bigger garden, next year I'll borrow a tiller or something and triple my space. I also picked some lettuce like the kind you have. It was good!

I've some green and yellow beans ripe already as well. Not enough for a meal though so I wait till mid week or the weekend. There will be enough then I'm sure. My peas look about half ripe at this time as well. I counted 32 pods so far with many flowers yet that form the pods as well. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

That was nice of you to give some to the restaurant where your wife works. I bet they really appreciated that. No garden here to pick from. :(

Actually, since we bought the house and I started gardening, a lot goes to her work. Tomatoes, cukes, dill, etc etc. They love it as well. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

I didn't know that you could grow cilantro in Minnesota. That's a new one on me. The only thing that I have picked so far is a roma tomato that is still quite green. My boyfriend said no way was it ready to pick, but I was hoping it would ripen on the windowsill. Everything else I am going to leave to ripen on the vine.

Sounds good.....we have a teeny weeny garden...first one I've ever had in my adult life..my grama always had a huge garden when we were growing up... We have squash, cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, cauliflower, and I think that is it..oh, and the boys planted cantaloupe seeds...not sure they will grow..... but it was fun to plant and can't wait to eat what it offers...

That's really cool. I think you must make just about everything a person can grow by themselves! And your wife's employers are lucky they are getting such a fresh product. They ought to put down your contributions on the menu. A special asterisk such as *made with Grandpa Bob's special Dill, guaranteed to be dill-iscious! I know, I know. It was awful.

Yummy. I love salsa. I made my own salsa last year and it tasted very good but was lacking something in it. I am not sure what. We have eaten leaf lettuce, green onions and tomatoes from our garden so far.
