June Garden and Independence Days Update

It’s been a little while since I gave you guys a tour of my garden.  The herb garden is looking pretty good…

…as is the back garden…

…and the asparagus bed is nicely ferned out.

There’s a little pop of color…

…and a few promises of sweetness to come.

All in all, I’m a fairly proud garden mama. 🙂

Here’s my ID Challenge update.  This week’s update is going to be catch-up of a few weeks, so some of the lists might be a little longer…

Plant Something:  Some cloned basil

Harvest Something: Herbs, lettuce, green beans, sugar snaps, kohlrabi, zucchini, black beans, cherry tomatoes, my first slicing tomato (!!)

Preserve Something: Froze some green beans

Waste Not:  There has been some waste around here in the last few weeks, but I’ve been doing a pretty good job of using up produce and fruit in smoothies.

Want Not: Stocked up on items from the conventional grocery, laundry supplies.

Eat the Food:  Chili from CSA ground beef, my first grilled cheese with tomato of the season, super-duper scavenger mode

Build Community Food Systems:  Hmmm, no.

Skill Up: Currently working on whole wheat muffins that rise better.  Stay tuned for progress.

What are you doing to build your independence?

Previous Weeks:  Week 14 | Week 13 | Week 12 | Week 11 | Week 10 | Week 9 | Week 8 | Week 7 | Week 6 | Week 5 | Week 4 | Week 3 | Week 2 | Week 1
