Swell and sweller

Woke up to gray sogginess, but by noon, all was sunny and bright. Tomatoes are starting to leap from the backyard, and another handful of fava bean pods were harvestable. The corn ears are still midget-sized, but we hope they will swell at least a bit more in the next week or so. Speculative rooting around in a potato hill yielded an amazing number of redskinned spuds, the largest of which probably weighs about a pound by itself, on down to one little marble-sized item. There are several more hills which will mature in the near future; perhaps there will be baskets of orphan potatoes left on doorsteps with the label, "please give us a good home."

Homegrown potatoes vie with homegrown tomatoes as my favorite garden food. Yummmmmm.
