Last Summer's Success

Here's some of the successful things my son and I grew last summer!  All photos here are mine.  I grew  several types of tomatoes, several types of garlic, shallots, lemon cucumbers, slicing cucumbers, Swiss chard, blackberries and LaRatte fingerling potatoes.  We had oodles and oodles of tomatoes, but the pickling cucumbers failed which meant no dill pickle spears (I made hamburger dills instead with slicers).  When we lived a few summers ago in Pennsylvania with friends who farm, my friend Gene made fermented pickles and my goal is to make pickles as good as his!  I would also like some day to be a garlic farmer and sell to local restaurants :)
