Sprouts, Orange and Green

I did some more gardening yesterday.  Planted peas, tomatoes, green beans, and cucumbers.

I was informed it was a little late for peas, but I did what the packet told me to do.  We’ll see if anything comes of them.  I hope something comes of them.  Peas are one of my favorite garden things…  It’s like candy…  that’s good for you… and doesn’t hurt your teeth.

Here’s my mesclun rows.  Or lettuce…. I’m not sure…  I know I planted mesclun lettuce, spinach, chard, collards, kale, radishes, a couple of carrots, (that’s all the seeds there were), beets, and more radishes the last time…  and they’re all sprouting beautifully.

I just don’t quite remember what I planted where…

Well..  I do…  in general…  Just not specifically…

Maybe I like to be surprised… okay?

Here you can see a rare orange vegetable monster, plastic fork in hand.

Don’t worry though, they’re easily distracted by red.

And rocks…

Here’s to hoping the Texas heat doesn’t kill everything before we get to eat it.  I’m desperate to make some homemade relish and pickles this year.


About Tabi

I love the simple things in life, like, wearing skirts and going barefoot. Cooking glorious meals to feed friends and family. Trying to find healthy food at the grocery store on a limited budget. Spinning wool, (yes that's from sheep and goats and llamas), crocheting, and weaving. Picking fresh produce out of a garden, pouring real maple syrup over pancakes, and making a warm and loving home for my family. However, I don't use only whole wheat flour. I do not take reusable grocery bags to the store with me. I indulge in boxed meals when I must. I prefer sugar to honey. I do not shop at Whole Foods, Trader Joes, or Earth Fare except on very special occasions when I have extravagant amounts of money to spend. I HATE cloth diapers. I believe in breastfeeding babies, but not until they're five. I buy pre-made baby food. Somewhere in all this, I want to find the balance between the fanatical and the uncaring. Somehow, I hope to settle on doable.
