I did a little spying game with Ilhan this morning on which vegetables are almost ready to be picked. Ilhan has language disorder so it takes a lot of repetition teaching him new words. He has more vocabulary now but mostly nouns not action words or verb it is still difficult for him to understand. He can only combine 2 or 3 noun words at the moment. I try to add more words for him while both of us spy on the plants.
I spy a loop shape bush bean in the polystyrene box. But why is it loop shape instead of straight.
I spy a few ‘tigerella’ tomato plant fruits. I wonder will it has more define stripe like the tiger as the fruit ripen. I spy the white turnip root pushing out from the soil. Our second grown turnip what are we going to do with it?
I spy Romanesco Zucchini has flower about to bloom. But unlike the squash this is male flower. Will it taste good if I cook deep-fried tempura with it? We never eat zucchini flower before because this is the first time we grow one. I first know the Zucchini flower can be eaten while watching Masterchef this year.
I spy there is still many peas and Ilhan is waiting beside me hoping that I find some for him. He anticipates lunch because he knows the peas will be together with his lunch meal..
What are you anticipating from your garden?
