New life is everywhere…already starting the age-old battle with the weeds!
Potatoes are just sprouting, as are the Italian beans. No sign of our favorite green beans – hoping we didn’t plant them too early!
We’ve been chowing down on asparagus as it pops up – it’s so good even raw right out of the garden!
LOADS of blossoms on the strawberries! The garlic is shooting up tall from last fall’s planting.
The kale looks great – as does the Swiss Chard. Pepper plants are forming buds. Tomato plants went in yesterday – red plum and San Marzano for sauce, grape and sungold for snacking in the garden, beef master and supersonics, and heirlooms — Mortgage lifter, Anonas Noire, Black Krim, Costoluto Genovese, and good old Mr. Stripey!
I’m getting hungry just thinking about tomatoes and basil!
Going to color things up this year in our salads with the purple basil, green, red, and purple peppers, purple carrots, and a few different colors of tomatoes!!
The holiday weekend will find us busy planting the rest of the veggies…corn, summer squash, sweet potatoes, watermelon, cantaloupe, winter squash, and more carrots, kale, and beans!
