I must admit I find it just as much fun now as I did when I was child to literally grow my own salad! My tomatoes are finally starting to come in properly. I had an issue with blossom end rot earlier in the season but corrected it with Epsom Salts. Some of the tomatoes pictured below have been turned into a delightful summer salad with cucumber, onion, fresh basil, and a simple vinaigrette.
The lettuce I bought in started packs a couple of weeks ago when my friend Sara and I made our last journey up to Black Creek Greenhouses in East Earl, PA. I plant my lettuce in pots and it’s a combination of arugula and romaine.
Thanks for stopping by!
Today is an absolutely perfect gardening day! I was out early deadheading and taking care of things in the flowerbeds early, and I snapped this photograph.
This week I have transplanted ferns all over the place to soften the edges between garden and woods. I have also been keeping an eye on which perennials are starting to go to seed so I can collect as many seats as possible. Ditto with the animals like my zinnias.
And on an amusing note is inside my compost bin a whole bunch of seeds are sprouting. Mostly tomatoes and melons I believe.
Enjoy the beautiful day!
