I planted red potatoes, onions, garlic and asparagus in a couple of my vegetable boxes. My peach trees have blossoms, the grape vine is putting out new leaves (which is a good thing since I thought I'd killed it) and the blueberries have already blossomed and are getting ready to make fruit. One little blossom is still hanging on.
There are lots of other things to plant still--tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, squash, watermelon...maybe tomorrow. For today, I'm stuck inside cleaning. The whirlwind of a weekend we had left a monster of a mess.
What's for supper?
Monday--Crockpot Chicken, Biscuits, Fresh Strawberries

Here's the recipe for tonight's supper.
4 carrots, sliced
1 onion, chopped
1 celery rib, sliced
1 can greeen beans
5 small red potatoes, quartered
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
4 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 1/2 c. hot water
2 chicken bouillon cubes
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. thyme
1/2 tsp. basil
pinch of pepper
In a crockpot, layer the first seven ingredients in order. Combine the remaining ingredients; pour over the top. Do not stir. Cook on low 6-8 hours. You can change the seasonings to suit your taste. I'm spicing mine up a little tonight.
I had some pictures of my plants to show y'all but my computer is not cooperating with uploading them. Maybe tomorrow.
