You don’t have to tell us we’re repeating ourselves, we know. But isn’t tomatillo a wonderful plant? Wonderful enough to take the same kind of pic of it every fall….

In all our years of trying to grow leeks, we’ve tried almost every hack in the book. This year, we ignored every advice, every suggestion and every shred of common sense, and planted the seedlings way too close to each other and way too shallow. The result: the leeks keep coming and they’re delicious and perfect. How, you might ask. The answer is: we have no idea!

Jerusalem artichoke taking center stage. We had a measly looking plant last year, but a staggering amount of tubers lurking underneath the surface. Not too much flowers this year either, so we’re hoping for another bumper crop.

They’re unstoppable. The cucamelons keep coming. With all the rain predicted for the coming days, we’re bound to have loads more.
