There are good things happening out there in my weed patch garden. Good things. It has been an unusual spring so the garden doesn't look like I anticipated, but its happening none the less. 2010 will be remembered as the Year of the Sunflower around here. (Now we know what happens six weeks after you let a three year old loose in the garden with a packet of sunflower seeds. A sunflower forest is what happens.)
We're using the sunflower stalks for twining up the pea vines, for staking the tomatoes, and for bean supports. They are everywhere. And I think I've composted nearly a hundred already.
In the garden spirit, we're finding lots of wonderful ways to use of loads of greens, broccoli, peas, and other early season treats. Here's the meal plan for the week!
