For someone who hates to waste food, thinning garden crops is a difficult task. Mentally. But as it would turn out, the tiny seedlings that must be removed, to promote further growth of those that remain, are wholly edible. These carrot greens became pesto, and earned a spot on my list of eagerly anticipated spring produce.
Blueberries abound from our bush, which led to a uniquely delicious custard ice cream made with our honey cream ale homebrew. The wild blackberries are fewer this year, but continue to ripen intermittently. The chives, as always, are thriving, as is practically everything else in the garden. It’s rained a ton, so the excess water and lack of sun isn’t helping new plantings… time will tell.
