Now with even more dirt.
What you may or may not know is that I left the fire escapes of Brooklyn and moved to California. And I must tell you – it really is great here.
Spring is springing, the dog is dogging, and we even have a yard for my new gardening adventures. So stay tuned, raised beds are in your future.
Fruit tree in front of our little bungalow.
Salad with garden lettuce, tomatoes, and store-bought avocado (obv). The lettuce was a little tough, but the flavor of our garden produce is really incredible.
These are the last of the wildflowers – unless the Forget-Me-Nots finally bloom! Trailing sapphires are still going, but the daisies etc are done. Chamomile might surprise me with a few new flowers!
Herbs harvested for dinner tonight – including a ton of basil, which we used in this wonderful dish.
I love when I get to make it home during sunset. The west side of our apartment (including the living room, kitchen and fire escape!) is really lovely then.
View out the kitchen window.
Lettuce is doing better, now that it is getting more light (previously blocked by flowers and cucumber). But a mess!!!
Baby Striped German! One is nearly ripe now, and there are 3 or 4 growing. . . Yayyyy, late bloomer!
Moved the Alpine Strawberry into a 12″ pot. GO STRAWBERRY! These little berries taste like candy – and a little like chewable Tylenol? But wonderful, and unlike any strawberry you’ve ever bought.
NO MORE CUKES! Done. What about broccoli?
Time to start pinching back the mint!
