This and that in the garden

Here are the most exciting things happening dans le jardin cette semaine: my pomegranate blooms are turning into adult pomegranate fruit; a few kale plants might keep growing another month; the sorrel, while never as plentiful as I had hoped, are moving right along; the red okra are striking; squash vines are trailing; basil is putting out. For all the other necessities of summer living — eggplant, carrots, cantaloupe, apples, bananas, beets, tomatoes, peppers — there is Saturday’s farmer’s market.
