Fresh from the Garden

Today was a busy day spent in the garden tilling up another area to plant, transplanting a bunch of the volunteer marigolds around portions of the garden, planting yellow squash, zucchini and spinach seeds, weeding and thinning the carrot bed, and digging a shallow trench and planting the celery plants in it that I had started from seed. The garden is progressing really well so far this spring! And we were able to harvest our first produce from it recently . . .



. . . our first spring garden salad. This one had four different varieties of lettuce and two of spinach. Add to it things such as homemade croutons and homemade salad dressing, and it was delicious. With the lettuce and spinach doing really well in the garden this year, I think salad will be a common item on upcoming menus!

  2. Dear Sarah,

    Yum! We've been harvesting a bit of lettuce from our garden, too, but probably not as much as you! We hope to be as busy as you, as soon as the Lord leads us to our own land. :)

    Thanks for all the godly encouragement you and your family give.

    Blessings to all,

    Marqueta

  5. It is, Suze! Fresh produce tastes especially good after not being able to enjoy it for so long.

  8. It was, Renee! We were talking about that while we made the first salad . . . it won't be long and our own carrots, radishes, broccoli, etc. will be in them!

  9. How nice that you have your own lettuce! We've been enjoying some from my parents occasionally, but I'd still like to grow our own. :)
