Give away.

A local greenhouse grows vegetables for the local restaurant trade. Since restaurant are open only for take-out, much of the greenhouse inventory is at risk of being trashed.

A local initiative is helping give their inventory away, minimizing the loss that might otherwise occur. Volunteers stopped on our street, looking to give away bags and flats of tomatoes. We took a generous helping, taking only what we thought we would use.

I see more than a few BLT sandwiches in our near future.

Await.

Our started vegetable plants await planting. Low temperatures during several upcoming nights come uncomfortably close to freezing so we are holding off. For now, we bring them out during the day to harden them off.

The rosemary (upper centre) will stay in its pot as will the lemongrass (upper right).

A little hard to see.

It is a little hard to see the seven asparagus spears in our small ‘spare grass’ patch. We have already enjoyed several fresh spears. The strawberries are starting to flower (though you cannot see the flowers in this image). The haskap bush in the background has flowered and should set fruit soon.
