It’s funny to me that when I say “The Krueger Castle”, I’m thinking entirely of our vegetable garden. I feel like standing out there by the raised beds, just beaming and giving everyone who walks by a tour. I feel pure joy when I think about all those veggies. We left for the beach for a few days this week and when we returned, we were surprised to see that our veggie garden had grown substantially larger since we left. The corn is up to my waist and you can see little cobs beginning to form! My excitement is palpable and I’m thinking we should make space for more veggies now.
1) Trim tomato plant – never ending task. We’ve trimmed at least 1/4th of it already. 2) Pull onion, dry and cure. Replant new onions. 3) Watch our second round of spinach and cilantro grow. 4) Eat lettuce. Keep planting lettuce. 5) Make pesto…lots of pesto. Freeze. 6) Keep putting dirt on potatoes. 7) Train beans up corn stalks. 8) Woah, that squash is huge. 9) Watch corn grow in complete awe. 10) Get patch ready to start asparagus next year. 11) Weed until your fingers bleed. 12) Debate with Matt about when to pull carrots. 13) Plant bell pepper and jalapeno starts. 14.) Pull garlic…become entraced by the smell. Plant more. 15.) Sit back and soak up how amazing nature is.
