I'm still here

I survived Princess' performance week rehearsal schedule!! I have many updates, but will take it one day at a time. I think I have pictures for everything. I should post with consistency for a while.

First, look at the salad produced by my garden. The colors are so rich and diverse. No two lettuce varieties are the same shade. I have tons of salad greens and radishes right now. In a few weeks the lettuce will bolt and Spring crops will be finished, then I will concentrate on beans, peas, corn, melons, and okra.

I will continue to plant lettuce, but the heat of the coming summer will render each planting a short, small-leaved harvest. Jove suggested planting in the shade of the fruit trees. With great hopes I will, because I cannot resist the freshness and color of these wonderful salads.

under our plum trees during the heat of the summer.

Your garden bounty makes me wish I was back in the Magnolia state in my own garden! Keep up the good work, I know your efforts will be rewarded now and in the long term, keep the fire going, the candle lit, and so on and so forth. Thanks for sharing.
