it's such a beautiful sky!
i had a bunch of volunteer borage come up in the greenhouse so the other day jambaloney dug us a nice hole in the front yard and we transplanted all of the borage plants into the new "borage garden".
as you can see, i took the pic before we finished the rock wall around it!
borage is one of the few plants in the world that is truly blue. the flowers are edible and quite sweet. i like to include borage flowers in our home-carbonated drinks, like our rosewater, sharab ward and cordials. we have noticed that all types of bees love borage and our borage plants always sound like they are buzzing.
woohoo - pea flowers - soon we'll be eating peas!
we like to take breaks when we are working in the garden and we do so by walking around the garden and looking at each bed and plant. we also like to take a handfull each of peas and snack on them raw when we take breaks. i can't wait until we can do that again!
tons of blurry baby tomatoes on only 4 of our plants - we have 80 plants!!! it's going to be an awesome tomatoe canning year - i can't wait!
here's a mutant radish that is purple at it's root and seems to be a cross between a daikon radish and a normal radish???
i have no idea? but when we harvest him (after he goes to seed as he is in flower right now) - we'll figure out what he is.
finally we are seeing some signs of some actual carrots - they have taken forever to grow this year!
now it looks like this out -
a high pressure system is kicking that low pressure system out and good riddance! the air is clear and light and delicious.
speaking of delicious - our absolute favourite pasta in the world:
made with home-canned tomatoes, tons of garlic, tons of black pepper, tons of fresh basil, parsley and chives from the garden and for jambaloney - hungarian hot wax peppers. he puts only a little fresh-shaved parmesan on his whereas as i add tons - i love parmesan.
anyway - we have chase the ace tomorrow night and then our summer dance is on saturday - woohoo! it's going to be an awesome weekend and we will definitely need a few days to recover!
i hope that you all have a great weekend!
