Something new we planted are turnips. They are really good for you and its something we never really eat. Plus they are so easy to grow. They were the first seedlings to come up. So that has been exciting!
Another new addition is the herbs. We love salsa so cilantro was a given. We also planted dill. Mom used to can dill pickles when I was a kid. And I loved to eat them. So we planted some cucumbers and mom and I are going to can some pickles this summer. Our other herb is basil. I'm hoping to cook a chicken dish using some basil. Or maybe a gourmet pizza!
And just like last year, we planted green peppers. They are so flavorful and great in so many dishes. Even on their own they are yummy. Once they get bigger and I have enough we will be making some stuffed peppers.
Our garden is growing nicely! Hopefully the sunshine continues through the summer. Send some pictures of your garden and tell me what you're growing, if it is flourishing or floundering!!
