We planted purple and traditional orange carrots, red beets, yellow and white onions, and shallots. We also got rutabaga to plant in June, parsnips, which have to be soaked overnight for germination, and some greens. I'm still working on the greens patch, looking for some more cardboard to put down for a path over existing weeds, so that I don't have to pull them. We'll buy herbs, tomatoes, summer and winter squash, and peppers at the plant sales for Red Butte and Wasatch Community Gardens, which will be on the weekend of May 8th.
A mowed the lawn and worked on firewood for next year, and we both worked on weeding, cleaning out leaves/needles/junk, and sweeping up on the side patio. I love that feeling of accomplishment felt after a day of working in the yard!
This morning, we also had breakfast at the Original Pancake House. I had the apple pancake, again, and it was heavenly. I probably won't have to eat again until dinner! A had the 7-grain pancakes with fruit, and a bowl of oatmeal. He can eat so much! Maybe it is a good thing that I don't exercise like he does, because our food costs would go way up! Anyway, I know that restaurant is part of a chain, but they make some darn good pancakes.
