So there I am happily puttering out in the yard, doing something here, fixing something there. My husband is also outside, tinkering with his electric cart. A peaceful storybook scene interrupted by a resigned–and loud– “Oh, no”. He calls: “Angela come, look at this”.
Someone is been harvesting my fava beans and it is was not me.
The compartment for the cart’s charger has become a rodent nursery.
Too bad, all creatures need to feed their babies, and specially rodents, they have a lot of babies. I was actually wondering how come fava production was slowing down recently… um…
For other harvest news, the spring harvest continues at a good pace: lettuce, shelling and snap peas, chard, kale, favas, spring onions, carrots, various herbs and lemons, all have been happily consumed this week in my kitchen. May turned out to be unusually cold, here in California, so I expect to continue reporting spring harvests well into the summer. I’ll be lucky if I have a ripe tomato from the garden before July.
