Garden Growing!

Happy Sunday!  Been up since 6 a.m.  Had a cup (well two, but really, who's counting) of coffee, homemade yogurt with homemade granola for breakfast.  Then outside to weed the garden and plant more onions, leeks, and lettuce.  Above is the first batch of spinach from the garden.  Got another batch today.  And I sauteed some chicken with our spinach and topped with a little sour cream.  It was fabulous!

This is the lettuce I picked today, butterhead and Forellenschluss which is an heirloom leaf lettuce.  We had tuna salad and our lettuce today for lunch along with hard boiled eggs and avocados.  It was very yummy.

So on to the weeding.  Below are some of the beds I weeded and planted more onions, leeks and more lettuce.  The tomatoes are looking good.  Not to sure about the peppers, but hopefully they will pull through.

This is the asparagus we are supposed to let fern this year and cut back and then spring we should be able to harvest some spears!!!  Those are potatoes that I thought I had gotten out of the planter, but obviously not.  haha

These are the climbing peas in the back, then two rows of carrots and a row of parsnips and then another row of carrots.

And these are all different kinds of lettuce in the three rows on the left, and then two rows of beets, two different kinds and then lettuce in the back on the right and in the front I planted leeks today.

 This was a recipe I found where you make the whole cookie dough in the cast iron skillet and then bake it.  It turned out wonderful, as you can see below and lasted about a day and a half.  (Yes, we definitely have a sweet tooth at our house lol).
So we sold Monica's two boys and are down to Phoebe's all red buck and the doe and then Rachel's oldest.  This is where they hung out yesterday, all chewing their respective cuds.

So now we will be milking both Rachel and Monica morning and night.  The pig will love us even more than he already does.  haha.  Kasara says it is also good for the dogs, so might be giving them some also.

Other than that, all is going well.  Liam has a double header tomorrow, baseball, and then a tournament this next weekend with the first game against Lake Stevens.  We are going to the Mother Earth News Fair in Puyallup at the fairgrounds Saturday.  Am very excited to see what all is there.  Have a fabulous weekend!
