I hope you’re having a good start to your week! I have a bit of catching up to do with you.
I went back to the farmer’s market and picked up more asparagus, morel mushrooms, radishes, rosemary and wisconsin cheddar cheese. It was a good haul and the number of vendors easily doubled from the last time I was there. I’m going to freeze more of the asparagus and keep some fresh for dinner tomorrow too. I’m undecided with the rest of the haul. Do I make another pasta dish with the mushrooms? Radishes in a salad? Or dipped in vodka and salt like I had at my photography class? Do I eat the block of cheese all in one sitting or shred it over tacos or burgers. Decisions, decisions….
All day Sunday the Hubs and I worked in the yard. I’m talking 6-7 hours of work. We planted almost all of the herb garden. The final piece will be some mint plants and one more rosemary to finish it out.
The container veggies are also all planted and ready to grow. 2 potatoes, 2 onions, and 2 carrots. Don’t they look exciting right now?
We also transplanted our teeny, tiny tomato seedlings into some larger pots to get them better established before we put them in the larger garden. They’re looking pretty spindly, I’m hoping their new homes will encourage them to pick up the pace a bit.
The largest chunk of our day was spent doing a combo of mowing, picking up sticks, picking up dog presents, weeding and re-seeding the lawn. We’ve got a lot of watering to do over the next few weeks between the different gardens and lawn. We’ll keep our eyes on things and hopefully we’ll get some herb sprouts soon and some strong tomato plants.
I’ll be back tomorrow to fill you in on what I did with the eggs I bought last week. Time to start the sprinkler!
