|Dinner from the garden|
Slowly but surely the garden is coming into fruition. While it is small by my standards, it is packed with food. I had an amazing dinner tonight, 90% of which came from this garden. There really isn't much that can compare to that of eating food you sprouted from a tiny seed, tended to, weeded, watered, fended chickens away from, and watched over until ready to harvest.
So, what's in the garden? Well, at the moment there is a varied lot of greens, arugula, spinach, onions, carrots, parsnips, beets, turnips, radishes, kohlrabi, fennel, peas, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, Swiss chard, kale, and tomatoes. Phew. There are tomato, eggplant, cucumber, and pepper seeds germinating now. I have more seeds than I care to list here that are ready to make it into the ground in the next few weeks. A small orchard of peaches, plums, figs, pears, and apples are reaching toward the sky.

There are hardy kiwi vines wrapping around my fence. Raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries are rambling alongside it. French varieties of strawberries hang in bags from it.
While I am far from being able to host a full scale CSA, I am on my way.
