I’m a big believer in sharing the bounty. Our Victory Garden isn’t big enough to take and sell stuff at the farmer’s market, but there’s enough for us and to share with family and friends. In the spring, I plant lettuces (arugula, romaine and Bibb) and radishes, and in the summer I plant silver queen corn, tomatoes, okra, green beans, peppers, cucumbers, and squash. This fall I’m going to put in some cauliflower and Brussels sprouts. I figure anybody can share stuff, but it takes an artistic mastermind to do it with style. So I had some stamps made up that I can use to zhuzh up some basic brown lunch bags. It helps that I’m a graphic artist, but anybody can find fun stamps to personalize their stuff.
We’ve had a bumper crop of arugula lately (YAY!), but I’m happy the romaine and Bibb are catching up. They should be ready by the weekend. This is the first year I’ve used my raised bed on the back deck, and boy does it make a difference … no unwanted nibbles from the bunnies.
Yummy goodness this spring: arugula, Bibb lettuce, and thyme.
