Our garden by the house is so green right now. It's a big change from last year when we didn't even get to plant it until mid-May! We spent most of Sunday weeding, harvesting and planting. Here are a few photos from around the garden.
The dill and onions are doing well. Especially the dill. Anyone have a recipe to use lots of dill? What I mean by that is, does anyone have a recipe to use lots of dill that isn't pickles?
The collards are also looking healthy. They've been thinned and weeded, now they are getting big. We've been trying out ways to cook them that doesn't involve bacon grease. So far balsamic vinegar and ThistleDew honey is my favorite.
The peppers aren't looking so great. They haven't seemed to grow much since we planted them. We don't see any bugs or signs of disease. So, hopefully as it gets warmer they will get growing.
Mrs. Burns Lemon Basil! A gift from my trip to San Francisco this spring.
Our broccoli is doing so well this year. Farmer John says it's the best broccoli we've ever grown. (Although, I think he said that last year too.) We've eaten it steamed with some potatoes a couple times in the past week.
Finally, here's another view of the garden. This part has the warm-weather crops - tomatoes, zucchini, eggplants and peppers. The garden will be much more colorful as those crops mature.
