Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day at L'Ecuyer Gardens was spent planting AND reaping.  I started an additional tray of tomatoes.  This week we started Rouge D'Irak, the Great White and Beefsteak.  Also planted are some additional petunias and broccoli.  The plants I started two weeks ago are growing rapidly and will be transplanted into larger pots this weekend.  Reaping the tastiness of our hard work was also on tap for the day.  I made spaghetti sauce from our tomatoes. Our sauce was so yummy.  The tomato base was a nice mixture of Roma and black trieffel tomatoes and it was so good.  The peppers, onions, garlic, and the herbs were our own.  I am looking forward to the leftovers for lunch this week.  This weekend we also hope it is dry enough to plant our asparagus and strawberry plugs.  We should have strawberries this year but will need to be patient for the asparagus.  :{  I heard from People's Grocery in Manhattan too and I look forward to selling through them once the season is underway.  Yeah!!!!   Livie asked me at our Valentine dinner if she could go to some of the farmers markets with me this summer.  As a Mom nothing would bring me more joy!  My Autie is still very young and will try to bring her to a few this year but maybe more next year.
