Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary.Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Harvest Monday - Late Again!
So one day last week I harvested from my herb bed in the perennial garden (clockwise from top) chives, savory, and oregano. The chives were a garnish on top of a dollop of sour cream on top of asparagus soup. Look for the recipe on Thursday! The oregano went into an alfredo sauce of my making for ravioli.
Sunday was stir fry night so I thinned some baby bok choy,
and some tatsoi to add to the stir fry.
I also got this harvest of spinach for another quick stir fry of spinach with ginger and garlic. Delicious.
The weather here is so tempting to plant out the tomatoes but I know its too soon especially since they haven't been hardened off. This afternoon I transplanted them and four pepper plants into bigger peat pots. They barely fit under the grow light now.
