Just a few photos from today's harvest...what a bounty!
The first picture (had to publish to see what order it'd post in - using the blogger app for the first time!) is of the crookneck squash plant I "flipped" upside down. It was growing pretty much on top of the zucchini so I tried (with marginal success) to re-route it. Since it has already been growing in the opposite direction, though, it looks a bit upside down. Thoughts? Am I going to kill it, making it grow this way? I also snipped a bunch of the leaves; they were so overgrown that the bottom ones and overlapping ones were getting mildewy/moldy (sprinkler heads underneath + not enough sunlight for moisture to escape I think). Thoughts on that, too?
The second pic is some super cool tomatoes. Love how they're growing all rainbow-y. Adorable.
Next up...the bounty (minus the 20 or so tomatoes we'd already eaten by the time I took this).
And lastly...what is this mystery plant? It showed up out of nowhere, amidst the parsley, and has shot up to be almost 6 feet tall now!
Having a garden: awesome.
I am convinced there is something about the Berkeley climate that is in the mix. I never have this much success with tomatoes! All I can say is that I am looking forward to a delicious dinner soon!ReplyDelete
Hmmm perhaps so! You would think that with that LA sunshine you'd get all kinds of tomato growth!ReplyDelete
Hey @kimskitchensink:disqus , have you considered shrinking your photo's to fit into the blog post? It covers a few widgets.ReplyDelete
Good catch. Normally I do, but this was posted from the Blogger app on my iPhone. Good to know that the app doesn't resize photos! (I hadn't had a chance to look at the post in a web browser yet)ReplyDelete
No problem. Also, where is this blog's search box? I don't see it anywhere. Heard it was powered by Gawk.it - which is really good. Subject: [kimskitchensink] Re: Kim's Kitchen Sink: A Hearty HarvestReplyDelete
The search box is in the upper left hand corner - not sure what Gawk.it is, but it's the generic search box provided by Blogger.ReplyDelete
You don't use gawk.it? It is that social search engine shown on AVC. Your site is listed as one of the users of Gawk.it.ReplyDelete

I have no idea. If I am using it, it's not because I intentionally signed up.ReplyDelete
Sorry for the confusion...you didn't sign up for gawk.it, I just really like your content/site and noticed that you were pretty active with Disqus so I added it into what can be searched via gawk.it ... but hadn't had the time to reach out to you yet ...guess Michael beat me to it ;-)ReplyDelete
Anyway - would love to have you check it out and dump me some feedback when you get a chance...here's an example search of your blog to start with -> http://gawk.it/r7
Hi falicon - I'm not looking to add anything new to my blog just yet, since I'm in the process of re-designing. I'll keep gawk.it in mind though. Thanks for reading!ReplyDelete
All good and thanks! Will def. continue to be a fan and reader ;-)ReplyDelete
