The lettuce and carrots are taking hold; the broccoli and cauliflower are strong and the kale will be ready to eat soon. We've been eating the beet tops of the thinnings in our salads.
The tomatoes and peppers made it into the ground this week before the rain and they are looking great. We're expecting very warm weather for the next week so that will totally transform the garden.
Fresh spinach is delicious prepared simply - just add the following dressing after cleaning thoroughly:
Honey Salad Dressing
- 3 T white wine or wine vinegar (if using wine, use one that you would drink)
- 3 T water
- 1 T honey
- 2 T extra virgin olive oil
- if using wine, add a splash of balsamic vinegar
- pinch salt and pepper
