What’s up in the garden? Not too much going on yet, but we did have our first grilled veggies a couple of nights ago. We are getting zucchini, yellow squash and a couple of beans and snap peas. Yum! I can’t wait until we hit full production! The kids are already moaning about zucchini overload…zucchini in bread, pancakes, cookies, meatloaf, taco meat, spaghetti sauce etc. etc. And, my favorite, grilled veggies.
We planted wheat grass for the chickens and they’ve been enjoying it greatly. The other benefit to the wheat grass is that the long rows of lush, green growth make the garden look a lot more successful 😉
Callie, the helpful garden doggie…
A couple of days ago, Donald, Callie and I were out in the garden, admiring our tiny asparagus (asparagus? asparagi?) spears, when suddenly, Callie leaned over, grabbed one of the beautiful green sprouts between her teeth and yanked the entire thing out of the ground. Gasp! Groan! Oh, the horror! Considering how long it takes for an asparagus plant to produce, I don’t think they’ll have much of chance with Callie around. Our sweet Callie, an asparagus murderer?? We think that she actually might make a good vegetarian because of her daily apple-core eating habits- her fondness of gophers might get in the way though 😉
A bug I actually like having in the garden! Stay tuned for more garden updates, hopefully we’ll have more to report soon!
