Remember when I posted this picture of our—okay, my husband's— newly-plowed garden back in late February?

Here's what it looks like now.

Thanks to that pile of manure that you can see in the shade on the upper right (much smaller than when it began), everything is flourishing organically.

We have been pulling up onions and eating fresh salad for more than a month now. And we’ve enjoyed stuffed squash blossoms all week. For supper last night though, we had the first tender garden peas and my husband robbed the cradle for a small bowl of baby potatoes.

No French chef could have produced a better-tasting meal.

Now if those tiny green tomatoes will just hurry up and mature!
