The onions are really doing well. I grow mine on top of the ground. Many years ago a neighbor told me to get really big onions to pull all the dirt away from the bulb leaving only the root in the ground, and it works!! I am so thrilled that the peppers are doing well, last year they didn't do so well, when I plant my peppers I strike a match, blow it out and put in the ground with the pepper plant. Maybe an old wives tale, but it works for me.
Of course whats a garden without tomatoes and squash? My family loves squash. This was something I wouldn't eat growing up. I think because my family cooked it to mush. My mother in law gently stewed hers with lots of butter and chopped onions and I loved it! We also love fried sqash. Dip your squash slices in egg then into cornmeal and fry on each side. YUM! I can't hardly wait for the first tomato sandwich or tomato biscuit of the year! Sometimes I eat so many tomatoes in the summer that I start getting blisters inside my mouth. I know better than to eat 10 per day, but they are so good! I also have cucumbers, red peppers, jalapeno peppers, chocolate peppers, ( yep, I said chocolate), butternut squash, cantelope, watermelon, gourds, giant pumpkin and white pumpkin and a few rows of green beans! Come on over, I'll share!
Wishing everyone a blessed day!
