As you can see by the raindrops outside the greenhouse, we are having a rainy day here in the Pacific Northwest. I am grateful for that is what keeps us green around here. And green is a good thing because it is the season of growing around our house. (Which is why I took an unplanned blogging break...)
I recently added several Japanese paper lanterns inside the greenhouse for a bit of color. They have battery lights inside and will look so pretty at night during the summer months.
There are several things growing in the outside garden but I still have some seedlings inside the greenhouse. Above is several basal starts and two pots of pansies as well.
And look at the pepper plant producing already! I am growing two different varieties - an orange and a green.
Until today our weather has been pretty mild. Three days in a row I sat out this stick of unsalted butter thinking I wanted to make some cookies. Two of the days I put it back in the refrigerator because it was a better day to garden rather than bake.
Today, however, was a perfect day to bake. Oatmeal chocolate chip - my favorite! And in case you don't get your fill of chocolate from the cookies (I like them heavy on the oatmeal and light on the chips), a jar of dark chocolate, Himalayan salted almonds. An indulgent reward for all the vegetable gardening : )
What have you all been up too? I hope to get caught up with everyone soon. In the mean time, have a great weekend friends...
