In the Garden
I’ve been a major gardening slacker this season. I would love to have a lush garden bursting with tasty possibilities, but I just haven’t been able to get myself to the place of follow through. Part of the reason is that we have been house hunting! And while I tour homes and look at back yards, I couldn’t really invest in planting a bunch of goodies only to have to leave them behind in a move. That said, we do have some flower pots and hanging planters that could come with us.
PB and I did scatter some seeds a few weeks back Jackson Polluck style, which has led to some interesting sprout patterns. Like one pea plant amidst a sea of red leaf lettuce…
But the artichokes I planted last summer are going gangbusters, and I have already harvested 4 thorny morsels. Our strawberries are also doing very well, though it’s a trick beating the slugs to the ripe berries.
