Gardening | First Fruits
Here's a garden update for you all:
Strawberries have arrived! Hooray! We don't have many but what we have are sooooo good. Mmmm...why do I buy strawberries in the winter?
Mixed salad greens and Russian kale are also up and being eaten. Very yummy. Both are heritage seed packs we got on Saltspring. The kale is smaller and leafier than the kale you buy at stores. Kind of close to arugula.
Tomatoes and squashes are coming along nicely, seeing little fruits growing.
Potatoes, corn, beans, carrots and Swiss chard are all sprouted and growing nicely.
Peppers are still little but seem happy.
Basil is sad, there was too much rain and cold weather. I'm hoping they bounce back as I had big plans for pesto this year. Ah well we shall see.
Well I'm off to Nelson today with Barb and Micah And hopefully she picks up some yummy strawberries on the way to get me. Mmmm, nothing beats living in fruit country for the summer!
