Well, not really, I was quite loaded down when I left the open-air market today, but I was most excited about the fresh feta from Chapel Country Creamery. They had samples out and were selling quite a lot of it.
I also bought:
- Vanilla yogurt
- 2 quarts strawberries (plus one more quart yesterday at the Amish market — can’t get enough of them!)
- Baguette (pictured with the feta)
- Cranberry orange scone (second breakfast)
- Bison sloppy joe mix (to replace what I used this week)
- 1 dozen large free-range eggs
- Potted chives (I already have chives growing in a pot, but they’re being suppressed by mint that is in the same pot)
- A potted bell pepper plant (my seeds never germinated)
Which leads me to…
I’ve been harvesting tons of kale and had to cut back the original arugula plant, which had bolted. The two younger ones are still producing small, tender leaves. The zucchini plants I transplanted last week seem to be bouncing back. I finally thinned out that squash plant with yellow leaves — the other two were gargantuan in comparison.
I planted the pepper and chives that I bought today and watered everything thoroughly since it’s going to be so hot the next few days. I also tried direct seeding some parsnip seeds today — the only surviving seedling bit the dust this week.
I think some of the originally planted spinach seeds finally germinated. It will take a few more days to see if it was just a weed invading their pot instead.
The tomato plants I bought last week are doing well and the cherry tomato plant already has buds on it!
