Salad Days and Bouquets

 

Well, another day in paradise! Gorgeous sunny weather after a week of rain and flash floods. Last week’s work in the garden made a difference—fewer weeds, thriving plants, and sprouting squash. Last week I took lettuces and radishes. This week, those were in evidence again, plus chard and kale.

Another gardener came by and took some of the chard off my hands. I’m going to have to gear up to eat a lot of greens in the next few weeks while other vegetables come on. Last year, I was darn glad when I started getting zucchini, tomatoes and peppers. For now, I’m eating more salads than usual—all good.

And then there are the flowers! I still have a profusion, though they’re starting to fade. I forgot to take a vase and didn’t have my water bottle either, but they seem to have weathered the trip home. I have flowers for three rooms!

My mother sent me this small vase for my birthday.  It will come in handy for the profusion of sweet peas I usually have.

    Your kale looks absolutely perfect. No bite marks or blemishes to be seen. Bravo! For me and my white fly problem, that would be miraculous. The flowers are equally stunning. I’ve never grown sweet peas but you sure make me want to.
