I planted the tomatillos on Friday May 21. Luckily it became sunny on Saturday and then lots of rain again. Today was a sunny day and they look very happy. I look forward to trying some recipes later this summer!

rain....and a duck

It's been RAINING for four days straight. A rainy day is a good day to be a duck. This morning two ducks walked through the garden.

After watching the ducks pass through, I planted my two tomatillos and one yellow pepper plant. A fellow gardener and I picked some radishes. And here are some beautiful mustard greens from a neighboring planter!

We are hoping for some sunny weather to dry out! The herb garden is on hold.

First radish harvest

I planted the radishes on March 25. And here is the first harvest! I had two of them with my lunch today ---- yummy! Vegetables taste better when they are home grown. Seven weeks of patience.

Weclome May 2011!

April showers bring green and happy plants! This is a collage of radishes, peas, tomato, and strawberry plants. May has brought sunny and warm days after a very cold and wet April.
