We've been eating lettuces and kale from our garden, and today I will pick English peas for the first time. If I gather enough peas, we'll be dining on a Pea and Prosciutto Risotto tonight!
All of the lettuces in my garden are French. The upper right photo is my bed of cucumbers and edible nasturtiums. I have three Italian heirloom varieties of eggplant.
Plantings in my two herb gardens this year include chives, parsley, sage, tarragon, dill, basil and cilantro. I also have sorrel this year and will pair that with salmon this weekend.
Judging by the number of squash flowers on my three plants, I predict many loaves of zucchini bread this summer!
University of Minnesota Edelweiss Grapes climbing along our garage. I wonder if my husband will be attempting wine this fall. Two years ago the bottom of his glass carboy bottle, holding the wine, broke. You can imagine what our basement smelled like for days... Apparently, there was a bubble in the blown glass bottle. What a disappointment.
Peonies from plants given to me by my mother many years ago. They grew in her garden in Amana, Iowa, and now grow in mine.
Molten Lava Oxalis... I purchase this plant every spring. I just love it in this clay pot.
And of course, a Bisous update. He is now over 7 months old and would chase his frisbee the entire day... if I would toss it for him the entire day. Nope... not doing that!
