The Haul: Feta Compli Edition

O. M. G. Fresh rosemary feta. That is all.

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)
  • Asparagus
  • 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…

Garden Update:

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.

Baby Tomatoes!

The tomato plants I bought last week are doing well and the cherry tomato plant already has buds on it!
