Have I told you I’m 60? My back certainly knows it. I just transferred oregano and rosemary from pots to the garden and felt a twinge on the side I re-injured on Saturday.
I may have to hand the heavy work over to the hubby. Oh, won’t he love that!
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.
No sign of rabbits…yet.
Been seeing a few of these little guys. I’ll have to do a Farmer Brown on them, or cage off my veggies so I can have some, too.
Hey – I actually took three whole days off last weekend! I read my book (yes, that paper thing you hold in your hand), visited my in-laws, did some gardening and drank up the sun. The tomatoes and basil are in the ground and the window boxes are up and ready. My beans are continuing to grow, as beans will do if you treat them properly. Now they have new neighbors, that’s all.
I also harvested a few heads of the lettuce and spinach and have put together a multitude of salads with them. Can’t wait for them tomaters!
The hubby took my picture next to my long postage stamp of a vegetable garden. I’ll send it off to my family as soon as they get their new computer.
