We had a ton of strawberries this year, and the cherries were also great. Blueberries are just now getting ripe.

Basil, it is going to be my best and biggest batch ever. I mean it is booming! Also mint, chives, parsley, etc. I have used all those from my garden too.
For vegetables only a handful of tomatoes so far.

Olives and a pineapple this morning. The pineapple will go on the grill later and the olives into a brine for six months.

First harvest of this year???-4265b850-ff10-494e-a26e-a13d98fe6902.jpeg

There are a couple summer squash I'll pick this afternoon along with a couple of jalapenos. I was late in planting the garden this year so things are a bit slower than normal.

I'm jealous of whoever had the cucumbers--my favorite. I have lots of flowers right now, so I'm probably a week or two away from cucumbers.

Wild strawberries and wild raspberries.

Anything we grow intentionally gets eaten by deer, rabbits squirrels, Foxes, or Racoons. Our harvest is limited to what pops up by itself.

We also have a lot of queen Annes lace aka wild carrots. Never tried eating them though. I do not know whether, like carrots, you have to get the roots before the plant flowers.

A quick search on QAL.

Queen Anne's Lace: Also known as the wild carrot, Queen Anne's lace is in full bloom across much of "temperate" North America, Europe and Asia right now. The white flower head is edible raw or lightly battered and fried. The seeds work well in soups and stews and can flavor tea, too.Jul 10, 2012
Quote:
Uses: Traditionally, tea made from the root of Queen Anne's Lace has been used as diuretic to prevent and eliminate kidney stones, and to rid individuals of worms. Its seeds have been used for centuries as a contraceptive; they were prescribed by physicians as an abortifacient, a sort of “morning after” pill.
