Saturday Farmer’s Market is an event I started a couple of years ago, but kind of let get away from me. My dear, dear friend Chris asked me last month if I minded if he resurrected it (just in time for Easter!) and I was delighted to turn the reins over to him. Check out his blog for more gardening and good food goodness and join in the fun!
This is my comfrey. It has grown so large! It will have flowers soon, which are so pretty. I love it! I hope to make some salve from the leaves this year. Good for the aching joints!
This is one of my 12 potato plants. They are SO tall now!
A row of onions. They are growing so fast. I need to plant the other 40.
Beans and sugar snap peas are growing fast. I can’t wait to see them climbing that trellis.
This is the daughter’s garden. It’s a lovely mishmash of flowers, cabbage, brussels sprouts, rogue tomato plants and wildflowers. Wild and beautiful, just like her!
My first (and main) bed. Brussels sprouts are huge, the carrots are tiny, the pepper plants are…still alive? They don’t look like they have grown much yet. On the far right, is part of the line of tomatoes. They have doubled in the last week.
Another view. I got a little snap-happy.
Looking down on a brussels sprout plant (and my toes!). We were curious as to whether one could eat the leaves or not (since they look a lot like cabbage leaves. Turns out you can! And from what we read, are actually more nutritious than the sprouts! Can’t wait to try some!
So? How doth your garden grow?
