06-27-2016 Journal – Garden Update!   Leave a comment

With the month of June running out I thought I’d get one last garden update  posted. Warmer weather has certainly caused the garden to go crazy. The plants are growing approximately 2 to 3 inches a week or more and it’s still early in the season. Here are a number of pictures from the garden to show the results of our TLC and nightly watering. It’s been a rather dry beginning to the growing season and the watering is the only thing that will keep this garden plush.

Yesterday my better-half and I spent her day off relaxing and doing yard work. We harvested some lettuce and garlic chives to add to our evening meal. We decided that since the weather was so nice we’d be eating on the deck. Here is a picture of our table.

I grilled a number of boneless chicken thighs dusted with rosemary and a basting of ghost pepper sauce.  Just before serving I brushed on a light coating of diluted yellow mustard.  Crispy, flavorful, and hot.  My favorite three things. Add a side dish of our homemade Bread and Butter pickles and things improve even more. The ice cold Chardonnay topped off the meal perfectly.

This was the first of many meals of this kind this summer. As the garden begins to produce more items our future meals  will be even better.

GARDEN FOOD IS THE BEST
