It finally cooled off a bit to spend some time in the garden, and I sowed some lemon balm, lemon basil, savoy summer and broccoli seeds. I've also pretty much taken up the entire fence/patio area.
Please note the creepy floating toy bird.
I also harvested some lettuce today, as well as some nasturtium flowers, and two sugar snap peas for a dinner salad.

After that, while I was thinning out my beets, I came across this guy:
AND she has eggs on her!
After all of that, I harvested some of the most beautiful Swiss chard I've ever grown.
I also harvested some green onions, and then made my very first quiche. It was a Swiss Chard and Feta quiche recipe I found online, and it turned out DELICIOUS.
I also baked some lemon shortbread cookies and received a beautiful bouquet of flowers, but we don't have photos of those. Truly a lovely Saturday off!
