Spring Garden Update

Sadie was out in full force to help me out with the garden this past weekend. She gladly helped me pull some weeds and quench the thirst of some parched veggies.

The garden is doing well and some of the slow-growing first arrivals are already blooming past their prime like this broccoli raab…

and this lonely sparkler radish…

The second round of microgreens are almost ready for the salad bowl…

Sadie’s favorite part was yanking these perfect radishes out of the dirt.

Time to rest!

She loved picking the sugar snap peas too – we chomped on a few right off the vine.

Get ready for some lemongrass-grilled shrimp with gingered baby bok choy next weekend! Yum!

I’m excited to announce that I picked up a new Nikon that takes some amazing micro shots – perfect for food items! The Sony Cybershot I was using had a crack in the battery compartment door so I had to hold the batteries in while taking a picture for the last few months. No fun. Here are a few new shots of the girls at Leu Gardens.

and of course, good old Bitzy…
