This year I grew a lot of purple food, which all seemed to come ripe at the same time. Here we have: eggplant (two varieties), red basil, thai basil, black cherry tomatoes, Iko peppers, red russian kale, red curly kale and blueberries. Other purple/dark red food that I grew: red okra, blackberries, black currants, red lettuce, red peppers, black beans, red popcorn & cherokee tomatoes (the best tasting tomato I ever grew….)

Boxes in bloom

Here are the boxes on June 30, seven weeks after they were planted. All of the broccoli, spinach, radishes, lettuce and most of the kohlrabi has already been harvested! One mistake we made was neglecting to plant new seeds each week, so that we’d have a flow of food. Oops. Two weeks ago or so we seeded some arugula, collard greens, amaranth, and more lettuce.
