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 if he could take it over 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!
It’s been awhile, so I thought I’d show you how things are growing.
Obviously, it’s pretty green around here!
To-MAY-toes! Yum!!!I can’t wait to put that on some bread.
The beans plants are almost as tall as me!
We have sugar snap peas!! Daughter says, well, I don’t know how to type it out, but it’s the aural equivalent of YUM.
SOMETHING has been eating on my brussels sprout leaves. I have to spray them. As soon as I make the spray. My blender is going to love me.
Cucumber bloom! There are lots and lots of inch long cucumbers in there.
Yummy, yummy mint. I have to make some lemonade.
This week I cut down all the oregano and am drying it. Not a moment too soon either; I’m on my last jar of dried!
And here is the comfrey salve I made. It looks, feels, and smells marvelous! Next time, I will add just a little bit more beeswax. I’d like it a touch thicker.
The kids caught Mr. Pip here last week and we set him free today. I’m going to miss him. He always held my finger when I picked him up!
So, how are things growing where you are? Do you have a garden? Do you want to start one? You know I want to hear all about it.
