With lots of things going on at work and a good amount of time set aside for triathlon training, it has been a LONG time between blog posts. That's not to say that there hasn't been time for some great food experiences, from decadent cakes made by friends to our favorite spots--like Miyabi and Spinasse--continuing to surprise and amaze us. And I still need to put up a long overdue post about one of the coolest guys I've met and the unbelievable chefs knives he makes.
For now though, my attention has been on our garden. We've expanded our square footage to double the size of last year's plot, and we've got some grand plans and high expectations. Last week was the Seattle Tilth edible plant sale, which has become one of my favorite Seattle events each year. There's such an astounding variety of plant starts, you can't help but be filled with anticipation and excitement at the potential for the output of the summer garden.
Here are some quick snaps of what we've got going on. The little guys survived a couple of chilly nights early this week (except for the poor Japanese cucumber casualty) and are being rewarded with pure, unobstructed sunlight all weekend long.
Here's what we've got in the ground:
arugula (2 varieties)
lettuces (4 varieties)
sugar snap peas
sweet peppers (2 varieties)
tomatoes (6 varieties)
Grow baby, grow!
