Things get off to a slower start up here, so the vegetable garden is really just beginning to show signs of life. Granted we’ve been harvesting asparagus, lettuce and kale for a few weeks already. But to many, the garden would have looked remarkably bare until a few days ago. Progress has not been aided by the below average rain fall or the fluctuating temps.
But we’ve received some much needed rain over the past 2 days and our temperatures have been consistently warmer (a little too warm this past weekend!). With this, we’ve seen a bit of growth. I harvested the first of the snap peas, shelling peas and Swiss chard this evening. Sautéed in a little olive oil and garlic, they made a nice add to this evening’s pasta. Below are some photos from over the weekend – before the rains.
