VEGGIES: Golden Hour in the Garden

After work on Monday, around 6:15 PM, I wandered over to the garden to check on my plot. The sky was blue, the temperature was warm and the light was perfect!

It has been very warm here in New Jersey and I wanted to make sure my soil hadn’t dried out.  I don’t want any thirsty plants! I spotted a pesky groundhog scoping everything out. Not to worry, I scared him away just by walking by!

When I arrived, I was amazed by how quickly everything had grown! Just yesterday they were just seeds and baby seedlings. I now have more lettuce, kale, cabbage, mesclun, and arugula then I know what to do with. Good thing every gardener in the South Orange Community Garden donates 10% of their harvest to the food pantry!

It is only the beginning of June and I already have tomatoes and peppers blooming! It is so exciting to see my hard work pay off. And it is an even better feeling when we eat what I have grown. This week we have been enjoying salads galore!  I have FINALLY been using my OXO Good Grips Green Salad Spinner! All of this salad eating has forced us to experiment with some new dressings. I cannot wait to share them all with you!
