Crazy looking huh? Romanesco - cauliflower
Doesn't sound very city girl like huh? I have learned though that there is nothing in the world like a nice ripe tomato plucked from your garden, still warm from the sun and just waiting for some sea salt and a knife. I have found a really good source for organic produce at the Worden Farm Farmer's Market. I have also been able to locate a great source for goat milk...I am still hunting the fresh eggs but the cage free ones from the store are satisfying for now! But having my own garden again will make it all right again. I think we may have to make it bigger for all the things I would like to try.
Somehow though we missed this years growing season which starts in late August, early September. We went through a couple of surgeries last year and just our regular day to day chaos got in the way. But regardless of that I wanted to be completely ready for this year coming up. I made T. buy me a composter!!! This is not our first time with one but this is the fanciest one we have ever had. No turning the pile using a shovel. No worrying about critters getting into it. By starting it right now we can have the dirt all cooked and ready to go by the end of the summer. My brand new composter
It sound like a perfect plan right? Oh, but our garden needs a lot of work this year!!! We need to take the weed barrier up and get rid of the empty tomato cages, maybe expand it. Maybe we should tackle that this weekend. My sadly neglected garden (and really old dog (16 yr old black lab!!!)
