I've been a few weeks behind this month on sowing seeds, but thankfully I can officially say I'm completely caught up and back on schedule!
Two of our large beds are completely sown now, and there's three more raised beds out back that are ready to have seeds started. Yay for being on track again!
I also managed to get my monthly lettuce started. That's right. Every 30 days we plant a new round of lettuces or salad greens so that we never, ever, ever are without fresh greens. We grow our lettuces in the same buckets where our tomatoes are. They do fantastic in there, plus it's nice that we can grow year round in the greenhouse.
Once all of our outside chores were finished, we managed to get some asparagus put up. We pickled all we had, along with some lovely peppers we needed to use.
mmmmm.... pickled asparagus. Delicious! I even let Erick put a few jalapeno's in a couple of jars so he'd have some spicy ones. He wants everything he eats to be spicy. No lie.
A client yesterday showed up to her appointment with the loveliest flowers. Thank you! I didn't want them to be left at the salon all week, so I brought them home to enjoy them! Aren't they pretty. Sure does remind me that Spring is here!
We've been making a ton of juice lately. Now that crops are coming into season we decided it was the perfect time to make a permanent spot on the counter for the juicer. Come winter time, we usually put it away and only pull it out when we are going to use it, but spring, summer and fall we are always juicing A LOT, so I'm happy to have it back on the counter.
I treated Erick to a yummy lunch out on the deck. We are loving our food storage meals. Paired with our bountiful baskets and home-grown fruits and veggies I seriously can't remember the last time I walked into the grocery store. If we need milk or diapers or paper products, I send Erick. I still hate grocery shopping more than anything and ever since we've tried to eat solely out of our pantry, co-op and garden it's been a breeze not stepping foot into a grocery store. We do however need to make a trip to the cannery again soon. I'm out of hot chocolate mix. Ha.
