|Our garden, mid-July!|
|green onions, tiny beets and arugula|
|one bowl of the many many tomatoes we harvested last year. fresh tomatoes are one of the best foods in the world. fresh tomato, basil, mozzarella, and olive oil on good toasted bread may be my "desert island food".|
This year, we've been planning a lot more vegetables and some new experiments.
We bought our seeds over the weekend. We got as many organics as possible and many of them were from the Seed Savers Exchange! We didn't get everything on our list yesterday, but made a large dent in it. We still need tomato plants, though we are going to experiment with growing from seed too, a jalapeno plant, and brussel sprouts. I'm so excited!!
|The garden is ready for Spring!|
Our seed haul includes... garlic, shallots and onion starters. flowers to encourage pollination. peas: shell and snap. green beans. fennel. carrots. zucchini. mixed lettuce. butternut squash! broccoli. rhubarb. herbs (including catnip for Jack!)
