Welcome to the Kitchen Garden in June

2013 was a very cool and cloudy spring, it is only the last two weeks that have been warm and sunny, so the garden got off to a very slow start.  I am finally seeing some significant growth this week and we harvested our first salad from the garden, lettuce, spinach, radishes, and chives.  There are a lot of blossoms on the strawberries and the raspberries are full, so soon there will be berries at our table.

The peas look good for the first time in three years so I am hopeful that I will be able to freeze some for winter use.  I planted lots of carrots, but they have been especially slow so they are only three or four inches high, hopefully we will see enough produce to fill the bins in our refrigerator.

Chive Blossom Vinegar

Perhaps you noticed, I took a long, unscheduled break from the website.  Future posts may be sporadic, I am focusing my time where it is more important, however this vinegar is so good, and chives are blooming (up north anyway) so I thought I would share some chive blossom vinegar today.
