And so, a cool lunch for a hot day:
(Yes, the picture quality isn't that good. I took this with my phone.)Today the girls have dumplings (pork and veg) that I boiled in the microwave. I do not want to add heat today. And do you see that green, leafy stuff? It's Buttercrunch lettuce. Fresh. Picked from the planter just a few minutes before the photo was taken. Happy dance!
The girls also have snap peas (not from the garden - yet), yellow pepper (again, not yet from the garden), purple grapes, a strawberry and some blueberries. Not pictured: large stainless steel water bottles and ice packs.
As much as I'd love to plant berries in the yard, I don't think it's going to happen. We live very close to a pond, and get lots of wild visitors. I doubt we'd ever harvest a single berry. But that's OK. We also live very close to an awesome Farmer's Market, and there are some local Farm Markets that should be opening in the next couple of weeks.
