May Is SALAD MONTH

This month we are focusing on finding great salads.  The hot weather is here and what better way to cool down?  My carb loving kids will eat greens and discover just how great vegetables can be.  A great task in it self; however, our garden is their joy and they can't wait to eat anything freshly picked.  Time to plant some heat loving lettuce.

What is ready in our garden...
peaches (yum, picked the first one yesterday)
boysenberries
strawberries
cauliflower
fava beans (we are going to try the leaves in a salad)
lettuce
herbs galore

Our watermelon has blossoms!  We hope to have a melon or two, three, four or more this summer.

coming soon...
