The hummingbirds are back! All around us the sights and sounds are telling us that spring has arrived.
We have been eating from our spring garden for a few weeks and we will miss the cool weather crops when they are gone.
The hanging baskets are filled with herbs and mixed lettuce.
The raised beds are great for growing most any type of vegetable. This day I harvested just enough turnip greens and roots for our meal.
There is plenty more to harvest over the next couple of weeks.
It is good to be able to go out to the patio and pick the amount of vegetables we need for each meal.
This amount of turnip greens will boil down to just the amount needed for two or three people.
This is why we go through all the hard work of preparing a garden. We know how this food was grown and how it was cleaned.
