* chamomile harvest

Posted on June 27th, 2011 by maitreya. Filed under Home and Garden.

I’m trying my best to keep up with the chamomile plants so they don’t go to seed again.  Here’s today’s haul.  These all bloomed in the last week!  I stopped keeping count at 250.


In other garden news, I pulled the broccoli rabe and Chinese cabbages, which had bolted, and replaced them with another sowing for the fall.  The spinach plants were also bolting, so they got replaced with brussels sprouts.  My earliest cilantro plants are flowering now, but I’m letting them go to seed to harvest coriander.

My squashes have finally decided to start growing.  Everybody has sprouted now, and most of them have gotten their first true leaves.  My tomatoes are also starting to flower.  We may get something this summer yet.  The bean sprouts keep getting eaten, though.  Now I’m attempting to grow them in a window box container that can be moved into position once they’ve made it past the delicate delicious stage.

Currently eating from the garden: radish pods and flowers, peas, dill, parsley, lettuce, kale.
