The Damsel has a fun post in the works, but because it needs to ripen overnight, she’ll take you on a little tour of her garden instead.
But get ready because tomorrow…yeah, tomorrow.
It’s been a bit nuts around the cottage, because #4’s doing this:
Whew! Now. Then. The salsa garden has everything the Damsel needs for her homemade salsa, except garlic. She was too tired to grow garlic this year. See above picture.
First, these babies. Roma tomatoes. The Damsel was raised on a tomato farm, so when she sees these plants she gets both a shiver of anticipation of the yum, and a strange desire to run far, far away.
These little darlings will hopefully get a lot bigger by salsa-making time. The Damsel thinned them today–they’re just right to be used as green onions, and she needed some today to make baked chimichangas from http://www.oneshetwoshe.com.
Three kinds of peppers: green bell, yellow banana, and jalapeno.
and cilantro. Life wouldn’t be worth living without cilantro.
