We’ve been steadily harvesting from our fire escape garden over the past month: tomatoes every week, a handful of strawberries, a big bunch of chard. It’s not exactly satiable amounts, but freshly-picked produce that we grew ourselves just tastes better than store-bought, or even what we get from the CSA.
My mom was also a DREAM mom this week and shipped us plums from California. We have a tree in our backyard there that I eat off of all summer. This is the first summer I won’t be going home, so it was so nice to get a shoebox filled with them.
