Scallions, scapes, spinach
This is one of the things I love about keeping an online journal: I just sat down to do a Fresh From My Garden post about the first garlic scapes, and lo, and behold, it was exactly a year ago today I wrote about them. Along with the scapes, I picked some scallions and more spinach. You may recall that eight days ago, I picked spinach and rhubarb. I was so pleased, and satisfied to have all that food in the freezer. And what happened? We had a brief thunderstorm with high winds, and sure enough a line came down and we lost power for 23 hours. I threw it all out. The spinach hadn't even frozen yet, and was in a pool inside the freezer bags. But, there is a happy ending. The weather has been cool, cloudy, and rainy and hence, the spinach came right back, and I think I picked as much today as I did before. Tomorrow, I'll head out to the rhubarb patches and see if there is still some to pick that isn't too tough.
