What an absolutely wonderful week/weekend it was! No trips to the emergency room,the kids were well behaved, and we even managed to got somethings accomplished in the yard.
This week we harvested peas, radishes, and Swiss chard. And we are getting very excited for warmer weather and a larger garden. YAY!!!
|11 oz of French Breakfast Radishes|
|4 1/2 oz peas|
|5 3/4 oz rainbow Swiss Chard|
|Getting heeby jeebies just watching him play with the worms.|
And we got part of our bed fixed up and ready for soil. One of the posts was missing from out kit, so we are waiting delivery. Getting excited about planting lots of yummies! So.... what grows in partial shade?
The cress is starting to take off. I can't wait, it's so versatile. I saw some cress at the grocery store in one of those living containers, they sell. You know what I mean? Well, I sort of figured if they were meant to keep the cress alive and fresh until you could eat it, maybe I could plant it in a container and cheat my way into a cress plant. So I panted it, and immediately watched it die. That was depressing. By about a week later I saw a little bit of cress had started growing in the pot. And now there's lots o cress growing in the pot. Hooray! So now we have cress. hmmmmm!
Happy Gardening all! Check in and see what other gardeners around the world are harvesting this week!
