cold antler produce

Jesus, Mary, Joeseph and the camel!! The gardens are coming along. Every weekend I plant a new 4x4 plot and pick up a few potted plants for around the cabin. So far we have the following in the garden – potatoes, snap peas, green beans, onions, rhubarb, broccoli and three different types of lettuce. In pots on and around the porch I have tomatoes, parsely, chives, basil, strawberries and mint. As the weeks get warmer I will be adding rows of sweet corn, pumpkins, watermelon, zuccini, cucumbers, peppers and more. The goal for this year... my own jack-o-lanterns for Hallows.

Last year I was way to much of a designer in the garden. I tried to make it pretty instead of practical, growing things I rarely ate for varieties sake. This year I am sticking to what I eat, and a lot of it. Which is why half of that space n the garden now is salad greens and broc. I am a girl who loves her broccoli. As the summer goes on I hope to eat most of my meals from the backyard, and what I can't eat will be canned, sauced, jammed, and stored over for the winter.
