From The Garden - June 27, 2012


By the Grace of God, this garden of mine has been very prolific this year. It's not because of my laborious hours spent hoeing and weeding, although I've been out there every chance I get.



Strawberry season is just wrapping up for us with a whopping 30 pounds - Daughter weighed every one...


Chives and onion greens have been plentiful for our salads...


Beautiful dandelion greens have been dried as well as frozen. I use them every morning in my green smoothie...


Some dandelions had to be pulled from inconvenient locations and turned into dandelion root tincture...


Red Winter Kale and Winterbor Kale have been plentiful since late January...


This year I learned that kale flower buds taste yummy...


Pac Choi is a new one for me this year, very tasty raw in salads and sauteed with garlic. The slugs like them just fine too...


Mustard greens have just about given up due to the heat. We've had many meals with them and the fall crop will be planted soon...


That's the harvest report so far! More to come!
Enjoy the day-
