Full Swing

Veggie gardens are in full swing now!  Fat, fragrant garlic bulbs have been pulled.  Frilly, bushy kale is lush for the picking.  Cabbage heads have rounded out.  Beets have plumped.  Green beans hang waiting.  Snow peas jiggle in the breeze.  Lettuce is still lush.  Fennel and dill wave their feathery leaves and waft their savoury scents.  Zucchini and cukes are profuse – pickling has begun!  Peppers are dangling.  Precious tomatoes are ripening.  The bounty, the glory, the harvest!
