We planted some new pepper plants (habaneros and cayenne, both of which I was surprised but please to find at our local market). You can also see how bushy the cilantro has gotten.

The peas are knee-high and were completely overwhelming their early trellis, so I built up a taller one for them to stretch out on. Grow, babies, grow!

The two normal tomatoes are already flowering.

The other two tomato plants have just sort of stood there limply not getting any taller, and I thought I might just give up on them. But, look!

Not that you can tell, but that is TWO different little baby tomatoes. So those tiny little plants are living up perfectly to their name, “korai, törpe paradicsom” or early dwarf tomatoes.

And we went home with the first harvest of spinach, cilantro, and lettuce, if we don’t count the random spinach leaves we sampled last week.

The first taste of what I hope will be a long, productive summer!
