Midnight in the Garden of Herbs and Vegetables
A garden post. After a lousy spring, weather-wise, things are finally shaping up and my garden plots (one at home and another at a community garden about a twenty minute walk away) are bursting with green, leafy plants, long thin onion and garlic shoots, abundant potato plants, blooming zucchini flowers, and rows of carrots and beets. Add to that a few roma tomato plants at home. I'll also soon be getting some potted basil, thyme, dill, mint and rosemary plants. One goal is to cook as much as possible from these and give the surplus to a local neighbourhood house which does outreach to low income folks and seniors. And with any luck, I'll continue growing brussel sprouts, spinach, garlic and potatoes through the fall and winter.
