Aaaaah, spring! The trees are turning green & the daffodils are blooming. And there’s all those fresh greens in the garden for a healthy salad.
I LOVEsalads! The freshness, the crispness and the healthy aspect of it. To me, it’s like welcoming spring after the long winter season of eating heavier, more comfort-foody types of meals.
So I really (really) wanted to make my own healthier yet creamy salad dressing. After doinking around a bit I ended up making a delightful, creamy, healthy and tasty salad dressing that I can just mix together in just one minute.
And you can’t get a more worthy topping for those fresh greens than that, #amiright??
May is typically a great month for veggie gardening in NE Texas. In May the temps usually haven’t heated up too drastically. And in a normal year there’s still spring rains swinging through each week so you don’t typically have to struggle quite as much with your garden maintenance workload.
C’mon and walk with me through the garden & let’s see what’s “growing” on these days.
Y’all know I have to have my hands in the dirt. I don’t have any control over it – that’s just something buried into my DNA. But do you wanna know a secret? I don’t really enjoy gardening (I know, REALLY??! gasp!)
But it’s true. I don’t enjoy the planting, weeding, watering, maintenance, etc. But I really love the harvesting and that makes it all worth the toil.
Harvesting fresh veggies from my own garden minutes before supper is healthier than veggies traveling all those miles to get to my supper table. Plus food this fresh just tastesbetter! And I’ve often said that growing your own food is like printing your own money. Pounds & pounds of fresh, organic produce for just the price of a small packet of heirloom seeds? Yes please!
Wanna see how my garden is doing? C’mon in, I’ll share my April garden update!
Y’all remember last month the bull hopped the garden fence & tromped around the wet soil decimating my newly-planted garden? Well I smoothed down the soil best I could and basically had to start over. Because of this damage my garden was now waaaaaay behind schedule! But I’m hopeful I’ll be still be able to harvest lots from my garden this year. Come see the damage recovery report for May.
