Sunday I thankfully slept in and woke up without any soreness from Saturday’s 40 mile ride! After a swim and some errands, I met Michael and some friends at Papa Haydn’s for lunch. We luckily got to sit outside on their patio next to the garden. It was another gorgeous day out and the al fresco dining was really nice.
After lunch Michael and I drove to Wilsonville to go to the Larsen Family Nursery. It was a nice drive through the countryside, through rolling hills, passed mansions with gorgeous barns, horse ranches and nurseries. Larsen Nursery was easy to find and they had tons of beautiful plants! It was easy to get distracted but we were on a mission.
We got so many great things! The nursery was really nice and all the plants and veggies there looked healthy and thriving. That’s a good start considering that some of my lettuce at home was destroyed. 🙁 I spent a few hours in the yard planting the veggies. I got several different types of tomatoes, a zucchini, acorn squash, onions and lots and lots of lettuce:
I am sooo excited to see some things starting to bloom. It gives me a little confidence that maybe I am in fact doing something right with my garden. I hope that everything grows well enough so that Michael and I can actually eat our crops. 😉 After a long day, we enjoyed a quick and easy dinner.
The Johnsonville bratwursts are really tasty–especially the kind I bought this time. LOVE the cheddar and jalapeno dogs! The steamed beans turned out great too. I wish I could have planted some bean plants in our garden but I’m not sure that we have the room this year. Next year, we definitely will have room!
QUESTION: What’s growing in your garden? And how do you harvest the plants you’ve grown? Anyone have some good gardening blogs they can recommend?
