So, its like 100 degrees out. No exaggeration. I live in New England, where it goes from cool spring to hot summer in the blink of an eye. Last night was chilly, today it was Costa Rica. My garden sort of looked like an agricultural experiment- the hot weather lovers like the tomatoes grew about 3 inches, whereas the cold guys like the broccoli took on this wilted "kill me now" stance. It was almost funny. I picked some more lettuce, some peas and some rhubarb, and was excited to see some flowers on my Early Girl tomatoes. Yay!
We also went strawberry picking, which was so fun. I was reading the organic food thread on BHB last night (I get enough hits from MDU to know most people will know what I'm talking about) and Lemony said she eats "SLOW"food- seasonal, local, organic and whole. That is so cool because that is what I want to do and I love when things have cool names. So, we went and picked some seasonal local strawberries and it was awesome.
