|May 4th Garden view|
In the foreground is a bed that we overwintered. This weekend we will work on harvesting the bulk of the carrots and will probably remove the Parsley looking to bolt soon. We'll leave the lettuce in the middle row and mulch around in order to prep this bed for tomatoes. The funky flowering plant on right is Mache. I'm going to try and leave one in place to see if it will set seed.
Here is a closer look at the far bed, the greens are coming along nicely.
As I was saying, Carson and I are home alone so he is working with me in the garden today, sort of doing his own thing though.
I can't believe how big he is and how careful he really tries to be in the garden, walking a little slower, asking before he eats something that he doesn't recognize. It got me wondering how this happens and I came across this photo.
This is Carson at 8 months old, almost exactly 3 years ago. Pretty much from the time he could sit up, he has spent time in the garden absorbing sights, smells, and sounds. I'm sure I've been yammering on to him about what I'm doing the whole time.
So, getting back to the May garden, this is what I'm harvesting.
|Swiss Chard, Red leaf lettuce, Oak Leaf lettuce, Frisee.|
|Sweet and crunchy overwintered carrots.|
Perhaps the carrot swiping child is the other harvest. I suppose the seeds we sow often surprise us.
