Happy Kitchen Garden Day!

August 24th was International Kitchen Garden Day. How did I celebrate? Well, it was pretty low-key considering we were triple-booked with get-togethers.

We were running late, but I managed to make a detour to the veggie garden on our way out. Eldon asked what I was doing as I bolted in the opposite direction.

I grabbed a few of our Walla Walla onions to share at our friend's barbecue. They went perfectly with our brats.

I plunked them down on the counter when we arrived and announced that they came from my garden. My friend stared at me in disbelief, and then realized I wasn't kidding.

"I guess people do grow things themselves!"

I cut her some slack since she lives aboard a boat, and she's my friend. I spared her the fact that it was Kitchen Garden Day.

Despite the pouring rain and the coldest spring on record (supposedly), I made the most out of the day; enjoying the small harvest from my garden.

An early look at the Walla Wallas.
