Gardening, Working on the Website

garden-mothers-day-00661
Notice the new look? Richard and I are in the process of making a new website. We are using a new type of software that should make updating the website almost as easy as updating the blog. We’re both enjoying learning this new way of working. We’ve added a few new bells and whistles — like rotating images in the header at the top. I spent time this morning in the garden. (Do you remember what this cabbage looked like a few months ago?) I tied two trellises and started weaving our tomatoes, beans, melons and peas into the netting. I pulled some broccoli plants that we think we got in too late to make room for more peppers and eggplant. The broccoli had gotten so tall, it was blocking sunlight to some of our pepper transplants. I kept two broccoli plants and several cabbages. The cabbages look like they’re heading up. The heat may get them before they’re really big, but I plan on eating baby cabbage anyway. Does anyone out there know if you can eat broccoli leaves? How would you prepare them?

    Here in Anchorage, we’ve had some nice sunny weather since I got home from the Nature Writing Workshop. Just yesterday, while sitting out on my chaise lounge with 68 degree sunshine, I thought about going to the local greenhouse to get my annuals and vege starts. It is still too early–traditional planting date for outside is Memorial Day weekend, but with the warm weather my fingers yearn for dirt.
    Thanks for sharing your garden.
