Summer’s Beginning

May 21, 2013

The day’s heat mellowed only slightly this evening, which made for a lovely summery evening — frozen yogurt on the balcony observing the growth of the garden. We have strawberries that are taking shape, radishes that are starting to look like bushes, and 6 healthy-looking tomato plants. In addition to the tomatoes from this year’s plantings, a few plants have sprouted from seeds leftover in the old soil. Even more surprising, the fig tree that we were convinced was just a stick, might yet have some life! There are some leaves popping out from the roots that look suspiciously figgy.

Fig?

I’ll be spending most of my upcoming summer evenings at class.  The new semester starts tomorrow, so I spent the other part of the evening cooking some portable dinners. We made a stir-fry with soba noodles, tofu, and bok choy for tonight and Thursday, and this quinoa salad with chickpeas, walnuts, arugula, and radishes for tomorrow.
