Although I admit I am sipping a strawberry daiquiri as I type this blog, we have been working hard this week! Weeding, transplanting and harvesting on a daily basis...and things are looking yummy! Don't be afraid to try new veggies like kohl rabi, pac choi and chinese cabbage; you will be surprised that they are just as tasty as the veggies you know like cucumbers and zucchini : )
The hoop house is full of beautiful greenery like tomatoes, herbs and even a few rouge flowers to keep us farmer's happy!
Strawberry season is underway! Come hang with Chicken and Simon in the strawberry patch! I can't guarantee they will help you pick, but they are sure to entertain!
This is Anna, she and her husband, Lazaro, teach Latin dance through Danza Latina. Lazaro also instructs some super fun Latin exercise classes. Check them out! Zach and I have been taking salsa with them and we have so much fun!! (I also take bachata.) Now as I weed, I mindfully review my dance moves : ) !Me encanta bailar!
PYO Garden is Open!
(Sorry, rhubarb is not for picking.)
The dianthus and the tall flower in the background are presently the best picking. Below is a photo showing the proper way to cut flowers. We try and grow "long stemmed" flowers, but some are naturally shorter. If you cut too low, you will kill the plant.
Puffa says, "please cut ABOVE any other flowers that may come so others may enjoy. Meow." Be sure to teach your kiddoes too : )
Props to Sara Sloan, fashion consultant, for gifting me my veggie LuLaRoe pants!
