Harvested Spinach, Planted Flowering Trees and Poppies and Good News!!

Beautiful and flavorful spinach was harvested today. Our first harvest resulted in a Spinach and Feta Matzoh Pie. I found the recipe from http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipe/spinach-and-feta-matzoh-pie

Redbud, Rose of Sharon and a Tulip Tree were planted on the east side  of our property. In particular, the Rose of Sharon will invite more Hummingbirds, which we enjoy.

I found this robin’s nest in the shed. MaMa robin put it in a bad place. Her nest was down too low. Now she is gone!!

No Wasted Space.

I have flower boxes on the back porch. The flowers will go in later. Meanwhile, rather than letting the boxes go empty, I planted arugula and kale (The seedlings are three weeks old). The cool weather is a plus for greens and the plants are attractive.
