Why Your Carrots Need to be Separated
….when they first come up through the ground
Today I pulled the carrots from our garden. They were certainly an interesting collection of sizes and shapes. I think our raised garden beds need to be higher and separating the seedlings at the beginning of the summer would have been beneficial to producing more normal shaped carrots.

The Garden is Taking Shape
….unlike other years this one is in before July
When I was working our garden sometimes didn’t get planted until the end of June or later. This year, thanks to a burst of energy, my husband was eager to get the seeds and plants in for his vegetable boxes. I’m in charge of the flowers.
The weather has finally shifted and it’s been comfortable enough to work outside in the garden. The soil is no longer swimming in water and is finally dry enough for planting. The family who cuts our grass also seeded it a few weeks ago and it’s looking very lush and healthy. Two evenings this week it’s been warm enough to eat supper on the deck and I’ve been enjoying my morning coffee outside.
Today’s dinner started with this amazing burrata, roasted peaches, prosciutto, tomato and arugula salad.
The main course was a mussel, shrimp, halibut and chorizo stew.
