June 25th...first swim in the ocean today and just had to share! But heh..this is a garden blog!
The garden is in quick grow mode and we are trying to keep up!! A salad of our greens, steamed peas, Purple Haze shredded carrot and Egyptian Onion flowers... a great boost to a long day but am still looking for a nicer vinaigrette than I use. Suggestions welcome))) for tender greens. (I have a few I found on the internet but testimonials are usually better and more honest recipes)))
The peas are, as usual, not being supported well enough and will sadly be "peas in bondage" before long. That's always a sad sight and you won't see a photo of it in future posts. For now, they look outstanding...glowing white blossoms on strong green stalks with tendrils.
Little Ice Berg rose on the left is valiantly trying to stay alive. She's been with us for about eight years..some years she is stellar...but this year..barely made it through. She does look nice with the pea blooms though...looking up at them with the intention of growing big and strong like they are!
ps..the wire support for the peas is recycled industrial warehouse shelf backing. Wish we had more)))
