Garden haul today...

Rob is working in the garden...he was hoeing and accidentally upturned 6 red potatoes that were near the surface.  I like that one that looks a bit like a peach! 
We have lots of lettuce, here is some romaine (we got the Rocky Top Lettuce Mix from Baker Creek when we were in Missouri last June, unfortunately, those are the only seeds from there that are really thriving), lots of cilantro which self-seeded from last summer, 2 golden beets and one teeny green tomato that I accidentally plucked off while pulling some weed that was growing around that tomato plant.
 
I went to the farmer's market at Nativity school in Pleasant Ridge and got these beautiful yellow and red tomatoes...so full of flavor!  We made gazpacho.  I left the skins on the tomatoes and it turned out just fine!  ♥

I love all your garden harvest , I would love my own garden. But I don't have luck with planting & growing. Maybe I need to learn more on soil composition, bcuz any plant I plant doesn't grow veggies, it's frustrating .

We love gazpacho - haven't made that yet this year. If you hadn't said that tomato was a peach, I would have thought it was a peach -odd shape. I only have patio tomatoes this year and right now they're small and green.

I agree with Jo - I need to learn more about tending the soil first.

Nice haul - I really love it when the garden starts producing lots of lovely things at this time of year. I feel so humbled by it.
