End of July update on what’s growing in our Brooklyn NYC garden! We finally got tomatoes!
It’s the end of July, so I thought I’d check in and show you what’s growing in our Brooklyn garden!
Remember my goal of wanting to grow 100 pounds of vegetables this Summer? Well we’re moving slow, but my fingers are still crossed!
This is the first year we’re growing Anaheim peppers and we’re blown away by how well they’re producing! The peppers just keep coming! Looks like I’ll have some pepper recipes coming for you very soon!
And speaking of peppers, this week we’ll start picking our bell peppers too! There’s a lot waiting for us!
We have 2 boxes of carrots growing this Summer. This week we’ll be picking all the carrots and then planting more seeds to try for a 2nd carrot season in the Fall!
Finally! It’s tomato season! Our tomatoes just started turning red which has us so excited! Last week I made a delicious tomato soup that my entire family loved – should I share the recipe on the blog?
We are dealing with some blossom end rot on our tomatoes (grrr) due to the weather, but hoping this is going to clear up soon! Our tomato plants are about 6 feet high right now!
Kale always grows great in our garden, no matter what season it is! I continue to eat kale every day for lunch (this is my favorite kale recipe!).
Well that’s it for now…. time to get in the kitchen and cook with some of these veggies!
Tell me what you’re picking (and eating!) in the comments!
