|Nothing like a goat cheese, asparagus, green garlic, and baby scallion omelet, made with freshly gathered eggs, and cup of double strength black tea on a Sunday afternoon.|
The weather has greatly improved in the last week and we've been spending a lot more time outside, our favorite place. The garden is growing and I've been shocked at the difference in growth rate and sturdiness between the heirloom arugula I originally planted (delicate and insanely slow growing and I lost a lot of it in the storm) and the regular ol' arugula (super fast growing, strong, huge sprouts). I finally had to confront thinning some of my rows and was rewarded with a very tasty sprout salad.
|Yup, that's it...my first little garden bed, see all that green!|
|Some of the heirloom arugula and carrots.|
|I find it fascinating how even teensy tiny onion sprouts look like perfect little scallions, and they are so full of flavor!|
|Sprout salad! Beets, arugula, onions, parsley, hazelnut oil and tiny sprinkle of truffle salt. Full of incredible flavor, good reward for the agony of pulling up all these tiny plants!|
The bean decided that his new favorite thing is playing in mud...a lot of clean up, but he loves it!
I must've gotten a splash of water on this little guy's head while watering the garden. It was funny, he just sat there and let the bean pet him, never tried to get away. Maybe he was just playing dead. Either way, the bean enjoyed it.

|Best friends forever.|
