I have a cold frame and if I can find a few lettuce seedlings to tuck into the warmed soil, I’ll be noshing fresh garden salads in just a few weeks.
I was in luck, and as you can see from the picture there was lots to choose from. Naturally I ended up with more than a few seedlings – two different varieties of lettuce, some arugula, kale and Pak Choi – but my container garden is well on its way.
We’re starting off with some fresh Camembert made from local goats milk and then a flavourful micro-greens salad. The little jar of pesto that I found, made from wild nettles and cashews, will go perfectly with fresh asparagus and nugget potatoes. Then I’ll fire up the BBQ and cook an old favourite - beer-can chicken. For dessert… fresh strawberry cobbler. Now that’s a great spring-time Sunday dinner – thanks Sechelt Farmers Market for the inspiration!!
