the chives are already flowering - are they on crack, I wonder? It's only April! They say you should clip your herbs before they flower, or they will be bitter.
Can you believe a juicy red strawberry is growing on MY balcony? I certainly never expected this to occur. I planted this for "funzies" as my dear friend terms it. I can't wait to slice it in half and share it with Jesse.
Here we have a handy diagram - the beets are growing really well. They are obviously hearty plants, which is good to know. The tiny tiny little buds in the middle are the radishes I planted last weekend. And the carrots are growing - slowly, mind you - but surely.
Tonight I am going to attempt to make cherry almond nougat. Yum! (all to divert myself from watching the last three episodes of season 3 of Mad Men without Jesse. The suspense is overwhelming!)
