Simple Things

I'm snacking on a whole pile of fresh pea pods from my garden. They are so tasty :) So far we've been able to harvest peas, strawberries, chives, radishes, lettuce, spinach, and one deliciously sweet onion. I love being able to go out and just much and graze :) Today I noticed my blueberries, slowly growing plumper by the day, and my first tomato, starting to turn color. I don't like raw tomato that much, but I love to cook with them :) Still growing and maturing in my garden I have rhubarb, peppers, squash, zucchini, celery, eggplant, pole beans, bush beans, artichoke, cauliflower, carrots, and kohlrabi. Points if you know what kolhrabi is! I leave you with a picture progression of my garden, from a few months ago to pictures from this morning.

WoW! Your garden looks fablulous! I'm coming over to pick some yummies! (JK) I wish our garden looked half as nice! :( I'm in hot Florida so our poor garden is has suffered a painful and dry death! We got a few tomatoes and peppers but my herbs and everything else (too many to name) just burned up and died! Enjoy your fresh produce!!!! Your Blessed Ms. Princess Talana! :) (by the way I've been keeping up with you and your amazing life for a while now. Came from Nate's blog) :) God Bless......

I'm the opposite- I LOVE raw tomato (especially salted!), but I can't stand cooked tomato.

Thanks Meredith! I feel like I have such a small garden after what I grew up with... but it still makes me happy! I was scared for my plants because it was such a cold Spring here, but they are very happy now that our warm days and cool nights are here.
