So refreshing to take a trip to the beach. I must admit, I’m more of a fan of the mountains, but my boys had a blast. It was a beautiful weekend and we got to spend quality family time together. I got some extra rest too. Now we’re back, and back to work.
Things are looking nice around here. However, I haven’t made it to all of our gardens yet. So our list will be a short version of things I have seen so far, with more to come from the back 2 acres.
2. Garlic- can you have too much? Not in my kitchen at least.
4. Swiss Chard
5. A real chance to taste goat’s milk- for those have have only heard bad stories, it’s really great when it’s fresh.
7. Salad Blend
Again, I haven’t had the chance to take a good look at everything, but I know some things were close to ripe before we left. I’ll keep you posted. I did see some very exciting signs of Black Prince tomatoes coming on! They are not ready yet, but soon we’ll be sharing those too.
