Fresh radishes from the garden, chilling...there is nothing like the spicy bite of radishes from the garden with a little salt and sometimes also a little real butter with the salt. If you haven't tried it, you must.
The greens including heirloom red 'mascara' lettuce, spinach and beet tops. Last night I had a fresh salad with these greens along with radishes, lentils & feta cheese on top then splashed with good balsamic vinegar and fragrant EVOO. Yum!
The tomato seedlings are so ready to go into the ground in the garden but it's been too wet. The peppers and hollyhocks are in the same boat. Hopefully this week they'll get planted.

|Peas, radishes, beets -- again succession plantings|
The potatoes are thriving! Looks like we'll have a good crop this year. Both methods of planting are thriving.
And, finally, I have to share this picture of our crazy wildlife around here. I put out an orange half for the oriole's that have been visiting our feeders since it is mentioned in all the bird books. I've never seen one oriole at the orange half but look who visited and ate the entire thing, section by section leaving only the skin!
