We have a ton of parsley right now. I harvested about 6 bunches today. Check back in a few days to see what I am doing with it. . .

We were so excited to enjoy our first garden tomato last night - It was DELICIOUS! Along with a giant head of romaine lettuce.

We tried several new things in our garden this year that we are very excited about including the "Green Tint Scallop Squash" and the "Diakon" pictured above.
We have also had luck with our berries this year and can't wait to harvest them! Yum!
For all of our Loyal followers in Utah here is the link to a planting calendar from the USU Extension Service (scroll down to page 8). Hopefully you are already planting your gardens because many, many things should already be in the ground! For those of you that live in East Texas with us here is a planting calendar for you. The time for planting spring gardens here is pretty much gone, but it is a good time to get geared up to plant your fall garden, so start preparing now!
Be sure to check out our Garden Totals so far for the year! We are so excited about this adventure of weighing and keeping track of our harvest. The kids think we are a bit crazy, I am always saying, "No, don't eat that yet! I have to weigh it first!" Look on the sidebar to see our running total.
Happy Gardening Everyone!
