These last few weeks the weather has been so pleasant! Feet of snow have melted. We had snow piles and drifts that were 8+ feet in height. Not anymore. Only a small remainder is left of the largest piles and drifts. That of course led to huge, muddy puddles that were the first destination of all the children playing outside at this house. Wet, muddy everything. Even so I'm so grateful for the beautiful weather and the chance for them to get out and get some sun and fresh air. It was much needed after the previous month of sub zero temperatures!
Rosemary is one of my favorite herbs. It complements such a variety of meats. We use it on lamb, beef, duck, chicken and turkey. When I smell it I instantly think of warm, spongy, focacia. Mmmmm.
This year I'm working on growing enough rosemary to offer it with our CSA baskets and to sell at our plant sale. Today I had a few more starts that were ready for planting.
What you are looking at is over 100 different varieties of fruits vegetable, cover crops and flowers! And this isn't even all of them. We order from several different companies as well as save our own seed. You are looking at the order from just one company.
Every year we study our favorite seed catalogs researching the best types and varieties of plants to grow in our climate and our unique growing conditions. Over the years we have found many reliable varieties that we continue to grow every year. We are very grateful to have found some real winners for this short growing season and our taste buds alike.
