These guys, and those in the top picture, are little husk cherries. They're a relative of tomatillos, but sweeter. We fell in love with their pineapple-honey flavor last year, and this is definitely the plant in our garden we're watching with the most anticipation!
A close second is our hot pepper plants. We're growing both anaheim and poblanos this year. We've been having a little trouble getting them to pollinate (another post on that to come), but it looks like we've finally got a live one!
And last but not least, we'd been fretting that our lemon grass was going to be a dud, but look! New growth! We're looking forward to some Vietnamese and Thai dishes later this summer. What have you got going on in your back-forty these days? Related: How to Start a Green Roof Garden (Images: Emma Christensen for the Kitchn)
