Fresh Spring Produce

Our spring garden is growing up nicely and It looks like we will harvest some zucchini this weekend.  One of our favorite things here at the yardstead is fresh spring produce, and it looks like we will have a bountiful harvest this year.  Some of the yellow squash should be ready next week as well as some tomatoes.  Our onions that we planted last fall are almost ready to harvest, and we have picked a few lately for cooking.  They are very sweet and have an excellent flavor.  We harvest the rest of them when the tops turn brown and fall over.   We still have a few vacant spots in the garden, but K has started some seeds and we will tranfer the seedling to the garden soon.  Staggering the planting allows us to have a continuous harvest of fresh produce throughout the spring and into the summer.
I have a couple of projects underway which I will cover in upcoming articles.  This weekend I am helping a friend roof his house with metal roofing.  I will have lots of pictures of the project in progress.  The installation method we are using is similar to the method used to install metal roofing on a pole barn........
