But I am a farmer! When we planted this garden we had no idea what would come of it. Much to our surprise and pleasure, we have harvested oodles of corn, yummy maters, tons of basil, quite a lot of zucchini despite one very wiley gopher, lots of jalapeno peppers, sweet strawberries, green onions, radishes, some very promising watermelons in the works, and some pretty sunflowers, just because. We have learned how to start and keep a compost bin going for better soil. Found out about crop rotation, and a lot about what works and what doesn't in our So. Cal heat. All in all, it has been a very enjoyable experience, and we will certainly be planting again next spring.
I think it was on Wives With Knives blog that I saw a wonderful looking spread for roasted corn, made with cilantro butter that I aim to do tomorrow.
