Home Vegetable Garden Finally Planted

Better late than never!  It's been a busy spring and digging out new vegetable garden beds proved difficult with a baby.  I tried several times when it was just me and June Bug.  She either wanted to be right where I was shoveling or cried.  Eventually Jeff did almost all of it by himself.


Here it is half way done.  Moving the sod was very dirty work.  I'm grateful to have a husband who is capable and willing to dig out new beds - during finals week no less!  I shall reward him with lots of vegetables and good food this year.  (Don't tell him, but maybe next year we will expand!)

Radish Tartines - Open Faced Breakfast or Brunch Sandwich Recipe


Yesterday June Bug and I went out to Hawkins Family Farm to help put together the first CSA farm share of the season.  We harvested baby lettuce and kale, weighed asparagus and tied bundles of radishes.  I forgot to take my camera or my phone so there is no proof of the lovely vegetables or equally lovely group of people who helped assemble the shares.  Next week we'll take the camera.

  • Delicious

  • Pairs well with coffee - okay not a requirement. Let's call it a bonus.
