Saturday Dirt

Last week I got a book out of the library. "Grow what you Eat, Eat What you Grow" by Randy Shore. He writes about gardening on the Sunshine Coast. With his book and suggestions I combed the West Coast online seed catalogue. Who hoo, I have ordered seeds! Thank goodness they did not come in time for the weekend as it is zero today. Not sure if that would have killed my little pea seeds or not.

We also cleared a small spot of land for raspberries. The idea is to terrace the slope. I am ready to plant those too. Probably waaaay to early but I am impatient like that. An added benefit, fire wood.

I am putting in a rose bed. Not sure how it will turn out but boy is it a heap of work to dig. I am doing this correctly, see that line in the front. I like straight lines.
Before and after. Still not finished. Feels good to give those soft underused winter muscles a workout! And be outside.
Made Black Bean Soup in the pressure cooker. It was a 4 out of 5, not bad. Used 2 cups of soked but uncooked beans, kale from the garden (last years plants), swiss chard, sweet potatoes, onions, garlic (a whole head), celery, three roma tomatoes, red pepper flakes and poultry seasoning. Put it in the pressure cooker on high for 6 minutes, let the pressure come down slowly and voila! Perfect Black Bean Soup.
