In the garden

 I got to spend a bit of time in the garden this afternoon. I love gardening, I really do. Not so much the constant weeding at this time of year but the planting and the watering and the satisfaction of watching your plants grow.

There is lettuce and mesculin mix.  Lots of it for all our summer salads
 and strawberries.  The boys ate the first red strawberry yesterday and have to be reminded all afternoon today that they have to wait for them to turn red.  At this rate we won't get another red one.

and the coriander has sprouted. I love coriander. We use it lots.

Today we planted our cherry tomatoes, we got red ones and yellow ones.

the pototoes have gone from barely showing out of the top of the soil just before we went away to this in a little over a week!

the boys spent much of the afternoon hunting for worms to put into the vege garden

We also have red onions, garlic, spring onions, various herbs already growing well and just today i planted some green beans, butter beans and some purple beans as well as some peas.  I can't wait for harvest time!
