A little tiny bit of color is starting to show up in the harvest this week!
|Raspberry leaves to dry and fill my jar for tea.|
|The first strawberry. No, I didn't get to eat it. My 3 yr old did! And, a little basil and kale. Just trimmed the tops off the basil to get it to branch out more.|
I was hoping my strawberry harvest would be bigger this year because the plants started out full and plentiful. Then a bunny came along from under the patio, eating through the lattice, and then half the strawberry plants. But, I still may get more than I have before, this seems like a good spot I have found for them, other than the bunny issue.
|Some tiny wild flowers from the back of the yard.|
|Lettuce for burgers fresh from the farm! Mmmm they were yummy! Also made homemade whole wheat burger buns from fresh ground wheat berries!|
|The second strawberry! No, I didn't get this one either. My 7 yr old did. Maybe I'll get one when no one is looking! Also, lettuce, chard and kale.|
|Spinach, which is getting ready to be pulled because it is looking close to bolting. Other stuff is beginning to fill the area anyway! Make room! Summer is coming, I think...|
|And I thinned the cilantro a bit, which doesn't seem to want to take off this year. And a bit of cut oregano.|
Next week there may be blueberries! Wonder if I will get any of those!
Go ahead, check out some harvests at Daphne's Dandelions. She has a few more strawberries than I do!
