The greenhouse is bursting with beautiful life. Tomatoes and peppers are shooting toward the light; strong stems support the little canopy of leaves. Each day they seem bigger and stronger as they prepare for life in the big garden plot.
Our seeds and soil seem to be getting along well together; every seed we planted this year sprouted right up! Tomatoes, both red and yellow..large and little, came up in abundance. Pepper sprouts of the sweet and the heat variety are thriving nicely. The abundance of overflow will be available for you local friends soon!
Then there are the herbs; delightfully aromatic..both savory and sweet. Some are ready for planting out this week, and some are just peeking through the soil. It's always such a blessing to gather snippettes of tastiness to flavor our daily dishes.
Then of course, there is harvesting from the fields; cabbage and kale, chard and broccoli..tasty onions and leafy lettuces. Our farm boy brought us a beautiful crunchy head of cabbage for dinner tonight..I think some Asian Slaw is on the menu!
- 1/4 cup cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 teaspoons oil
- 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
- 1 teaspoon ginger
- 1 teaspoon honey
Toss this well and add to shredded fresh cabbage. Add shredded carrot and apple, if desired. Finish this off with a hand full of slivered almonds and a spoonful of flax seed. Enjoy!
