I've been too busy lately and have been terrible about keeping up with posting. So here's the garden update and I'll do the cooking update next.
There are about four asparagus crowns that have started putting up baby shoots. No harvesting this year but knowing I didn't kill them...priceless. ;)
The first true leaves on the babies in the second flat. The Oregon Cherry tomato gets this honor.
The second flat. The tags are hard to read so, starting from the back left:
Nova (Roma tomato variety), OR Cherry and Siletz tomatoes (1 cell each) and cabbage across the rest of the back. Front row starting left: peppers, eggplants, basil, broccoli and cauliflower.
The first flat. Onions are starting to look meatier and the celery is looking leafy. I'm worried that the babies seem a bit leggy - but maybe it's just a phase? The celery has enough true leaves that I'm going to transplant to larger pots this weekend to give it some actual soil so it can get some nutrients.
