Gettin' fresh … in Northern Nevada

The First Harvest

The weather here is still all over the map but my mini-greenhouses are doing pretty well.   I had to cover everything recently for a flash flood-type of thunderstorm that, in reality, only lasted a few minutes, but would have devastated my tender little plants if they had been exposed.   The overnight temperatures haven’t been too bad.   However, it does flirt with the freezing mark on a regular basis despite hitting near 90 the other day.   I live in a crazy dry … and very wide ranging little climate zone.

So, every little success must be celebrated.   Today, we celebrated GREENS.   Mmmmmm.     There were just enough greens for me and the Fresh Hubs to each have a big, green salad for lunch today.   Lucky us.

Mesclun, not to be confused with Mescaline … completely different fruit of the desert.

Blue kale.   Take that, Whole Foods!   Boom.

Green beans, almost ready to climb

the peppers are still in their milkjug greenhouses, sensitive little boogers

Grow, DAMN YOU, grow!

Grow, DAMN YOU, grow!

In all it's glory. and hard earned, GREENS.
