Tomato Transplanting Time!

Today I went to the Boulder Farmers Market for the first time this year to get tomato plants. I will wait until it is warmer to plant them as it may get cold tonight. I look forward to having fresh tomatoes from the garden later this summer. Tomatoes are full of lycopene which is an antioxidant that helps protect against cancer. And tomatoes are great in ratatouille, homemade tomato sauce, etc. Gabriel had a great time and for the first time in his life ever didn't run out into the bike path! Good things come with age!

The Garden is In!

This year I was so busy and overwhelmed with recent family events I almost wasn't going to put in a veggie garden! What kind of a naturopathic doctor would I be without a veggie garden? ( Just joking!) But at the 11th hour I found a lovely woman who wanted to trade for my services and voila! The garden is in! So far I have planted 2 types of lettuce, lancinato kale, colllard greens and spinach. Later when the weather gets warm comes the squashes, herbs and the tomatoes. Happy spring!
