We have finished double-digging! After two days of nearly frantic weeding
and double digging -- the kind where you tell yourself you're just going to do
so much and then find yourself in a panic to do twice that just to finish faster
-- we have finished the vegetable plot. All that remains is to plant. We put in
our Mung bean sprouts yesterday, and now we have cucumbers, peppers, and French
beans left to go in.
With the spring rains finally behind us (we hope), summer vegetables are
starting to come in. The farmer's market yesterday was boasting the first summer
squash and some beautiful baby carrots. For us that means it's time to start
changing up the menu to incorporate all of that fresh veggie goodness, so stop
by and check out our changes!
