Oh my, but the garden is a challenge this year! We went from the chickens eating off the plants, to the freezing temperatures, to rain almost daily! Then... the tiller started acting up, so that means more hand weeding and working the hoe! But, all that work has to wait until it's dry enough to get in the garden.
We finally have things just about under control again.
With Sunday dinner, we finally were able to enjoy a garden fresh salad!
Lettuce, radish, and onion! YUM!
Just look at all those onions! All one hundred of them!
We even had our first two pea pods. One for me, one for him!
Everything in the cabbage family is growing right along.
And, our pride and joy... Strawberries!
Considering we only planted 25 plants last year, we are thrilled with the berries we are enjoying so far!
Look at the size of that strawberry!
Now, it's time to start making some strawberry treats. What's your favorite strawberry recipe?
