How Far We've Come


It has only been 2 months but I am on to the next  planting of many greens already. All the Tatsoi got pulled up  and I harvested all the salvageable leaves and used the flowers in arragements. Needless to say we have been eating a lot of salad, bok choy, and spinach. But nothing lasts forever, especially these tender greens under summer sun. 
I should have started the next round 2 weeks earlier, but let other chores get in the way. Now I have tiny little seedlings next to large luscious cabbages. Hopefully the next seedlings will catch up fast!

This week the snap peas should be ready to eat    and bush beans will not be far behind. Our goal is to have a variety of things to eat cold like lettuces and spinach, and then things to make hot like bok choy, swiss chard, and beets. The other goal is to eat most nights from things in the garden from May15th to about Sept.15th- without boredom! I'll let you know how that goes.
Until then I will continue to keep the color varied and the textures mixed to create visual as well as gastronomic pleasure!
