May: the month our garden started feeding us


It’s that time of year again – the time when we can start skipping the grocery store and walk out into the garden instead. YAY!

Last year we got a late start, not planting seeds in the ground until late May and early June. That meant we had loads of yummy garden veggies and fruit to eat from July – September, but that was about the extent of our ‘from our land’ feasting. 

This year we improved. It’s May long weekend and we already have all kinds of edibles growing, including a happy handful of things that are ready to harvest now.

Here’s what we’re currently munching on:


  • rhubarb


  • raddishes
  • spinach


  • mint
  • parsley
  • chives
  • oregano
  • par-cel


  • nettles
  • dandelion

Eating straight from the garden is super satisfying, as well as healthy and economical. We’re lucky we live in a climate where we can realistically grow food year round (one of our goals for this year!).May has been pretty rewarding already. Can’t wait to see what June brings!
