Yeah, we know it’s hot here in the deep South. Really wish we were already on our way to cooler temperatures. Shouldn’t be too much longer.
But, one of the benefits of living where the temperature hits the nineties in early June is that our gardens come in a lot earlier than most of the Country. While I read on other blogs of folks just planting their gardens, ours has already started producing.
I pulled the first sweet corn this morning. Wish I knew what I had planted. Small compact ears on short stalks. I believe it is the sweetest corn I’ve ever tasted. I just don’t have a clue what it is called. Some hybrid I picked up at Tractor Supply.
Also picked our first tomatoes this week. Still haven’t hit their prime yet, but there’s nothing like the first tomato sandwich of the year. You just can’t beat a fresh loaf of bread, some Blue Plate mayonnaise, a little salt and pepper, and a fresh home grown tomato.
Also have some fresh peach’s from the orchard down the road. Maybe I can talk Wanda into a peach cobbler sometime this weekend.
It could be that if our timing is right, we can just eat our way North and West as the fresh produce comes in. Follow the ripening sweet corn North. Or maybe the tomatoes……jc
