Backyard Food Update for May

It's mid-May now. After a slight break during the wintertime, our backyard solar food generator seems to be at work again. The sunshine has been making the plants grow. The lettuce is ready, so we've been eating lots of salad. Also, we've harvested some of our spinach.

The pea pods are this year's hit -- especially with Hikaru who enjoys eating them. He says that the peas are his "favorite".

The cumbers are "almost" ready, and we watch them transform from yellow flowers to cucumber that we can eat.

They are blowing up like a little green balloon. The change in size over the course of a day is quite noticeable.

And finally, here's an inside view of our carrot forest. This may be their last picture before they are eaten.
