Not a lot this week.
I mentioned last week that I had a farm on the kitchen countertop. Others have written about finding coir not a great starting medium for seeds. If I had done some in coir and some in some other soil I could compare but I didn’t so I can’t. The seedlings are still growing and still green so at least there’s that. We’re in the midst of a cold snap–maybe the last this year? Dipped below freezing last night so I had to cover tender stuff outside and obviously haven’t been able to start putting these tender babies out. Maybe next week I can start hardening them off for the shift.
It would have been nice to have carrots or broccoli from the garden for Easter. As it is, we’ll have… cabbage. Yes, I have a couple of small heads of cabbage that I’ll harvest later this week. Pose them for their closeups, weigh them, then do something delicious with them.
In the meantime, we continue to enjoy the “bounty.” Even these bits and drabs from the garden are delicious, so much better than anything we buy at the store. We enjoy every bite. Broc bits and carrots for tonight. I’m going to chop them, then sautee with butter and some chopped shallots. Yum.
In case you’re wondering, yes I am still bouncing. I am still waiting. I am still forced to keep my lips zipped. And it is killing me.
