Busy Day!

Today was busy!  Maybe it's because....THE SUN FINALLY CAME OUT!!!

It must have been 60 degrees out!  You could hear the vegetables growing!  Some of the spinach leaves have reached epic proportions....

And they are just as sweet and tender as can be.  Today I had one in my breakfast burrito....Delicious!

I had quite a few customers stop by today.  Everyone is hungry for fresh greens.  Here is my lovely neighbor, Anne....

The last job of the day was to put together a gift basket.  I sell gift baskets for $40 plus tax.  You just tell me when you want it and I fill it with good things that are in season and all you have to do is swing by and pick it up.  I can even deliver it for you after hours if necessary! 

Well, I am hitting the sack!  Happy gardening!
