So, I'm trying to start a blog. I know, late to the party, but still it seems like a way to get out my thoughts about gardening, simplifying and making retirement fulfilling and affordable. I almost quit from the get-go when I found on my first attempt day before yesterday I was unable to add photos and text that I wanted to the templates of the blog. I STILL don't know what to do. But I don't want to crawl away with my tail between my legs so at least I will post something today and hope to work out the problems eventually.
We have had a run of very gloomy, wet and cold days here in CT. Not conducive to spending time in the garden, but I was praying for a good soaking rain last week and am grateful we did get that. The slugs are out in force. So far I have harvested lettuce and asian greens (tatsoi, bok choy, komatsuna, mibuna and mizuna.) I love asian greens because they are so versatile and easy to grow! Also have gotten a small harvest of swiss chard and kale and some french breakfast radishes.
I am growing shelling peas for the first time ever. Picked a handful yesterday which yielded a few mouthfuls of steamed peas that tasted heavenly! I've never eaten fresh peas before (not counting sugar snaps and snow peas which we've eaten lots of.)
