Fresh asparagus from the farmer’s market in Reston this week. Nothing like a fresh start for Spring.
Winter’s nice and all, but carrots, potatoes and meat can only go so far. It’s nice to see fresh produce in season again—that’s for sure. And it’s nice to see something grow again.
The garden out back isn’t looking too bad in its third year of growing (I posted about building it back in 2010).
It’s planted with tomatoes, peppers, chives, rosemary, basil, thai basil, sage, thyme, leeks, and catnip. Yes, catnip.
For our antisocial recluse of a cat. We figure if we give her enough drugs, she might loosen up. We’ll see how that works.
We’ve even got some peaches growing this year:
Inside, the aerogardens continue to function well, providing hot peppers and herbs over the winter and now into the spring.
The basil in particular grows so fast, it’s hard to keep up with. I can’t even use it all.
But it does go well on a homemade pizza.
