I’ve been MIA recently. I’ve been up to my eyeballs working on some new projects for my business and, hey, the weather’s nice!
We started our farm share three weeks ago and yesterday came home with a laundry basket full of spring veggies: garlic scapes, kohlrabi, lettuce, peas, the whole lot. I admit to being unfamiliar with kohlrabi and garlic scapes, but there are plenty of resources out there, especially on the internet. What the heck do you do with kohlrabi? Here are 200 recipes for you. By the way, did you know this weird looking vegetable is a member of the cabbage family?
My side yard is doing its thing, too, although some plants are faring better than others. I’ll have to wait and see what happens as time goes by. My bean plants? I have beans! I have beans!
I also have tiny, tiny tomatoes starting to come out to play. Right now you can barely see them, but give them a week or two and they’ll be taking over their cages.
I’m a little disappointed with the yellow bean plants. They’re in a planter, so maybe they don’t like it there. Or, maybe they just need a little more sun and less rain to get their act together.
