In My San Diego Garden and Kitchen

I’m starting with flowers in today’s post. They’re not in the vegetable garden but put on a glorious show in the street-side garden. The Mexican marigold, Tagetes lemmonii is a flaming ball of orange about six feet by six feet and is a show stopper.

Delicata squash harvested a few weeks ago.

Delicata squash harvested a few weeks ago.

I roasted crescents of delicata squash over the weekend. Love that the skins are edible with the additional benefits of antioxidants formed from fending off the sun’s UV rays. These are not keepers so I’ll get to the others soon.

Recently harvested romaine lettuce.

Recently harvested romaine lettuce.

With Santa Ana conditions headed our way last week, I knew the romaine lettuce would bolt so I harvested the remaining five heads. I took two to my sister in Oregon (which, of course prompted a TSA check of my luggage) and gave the others to neighbors. My seeded lettuce is slow to come in so I planted another six-pack to keep the lettuce thing going.

‘Red Beauty’ red peppers.

‘Red Beauty’ red peppers.

I’m still harvesting about two red peppers each week but not for long.

See what other garden bloggers continue to gather in at Harvest Monday, hosted by Dave at Our Happy Acres.
