June 8th 2010.

We are finally getting a bit of warmth and sunshine after an unusually wet and cool month of May. I'm very happy with the vegetable garden... and particularly these peas...oh these peas...I'm so waiting for them. Yeah, it's awfully late for peas in these parts but I got them in the ground too late and with the weird weather the seeds took forever to sprout. They are almost knee high now and starting to get flowers. The stalks are very very vigorous looking. They are Oregon giant Snow peas. Love the name.

And I've been making herbal vinegars and oils too. This one is made with chives flowers and leaves. It's turning a lovely shade of pink after a week.

It's almost the end of Spring already, these are the last of the bells or Faery hats as I call them.

I guess we are on to tomatoes and zucchini. Anyone wants zucchini? My plants are huge, healthy and have a gazillion of flowers.

And tonight on the menu:

Roasted Chicken with steamed green beans, homemade herb butter and caramelized onions.
Well, I think the title sums it up pretty nicely.
