Eating from my backyard starting on June 1st has been a giant bust. Our spring has been colder and wetter and more overcast than normal which means my gardens are way behind. As I type this, it is overcast and cold on my girls' last day of school-a heck of a depressing way to start the summer. I've amended my original intent to eat out of my backyard for just some of the day or part of a meal-I've been limited to salads now that the asparagus is done. I am so sick of salad. I may have some strawberries soon, not many, but at least it's a fruit. I've been relying on rhubarb for fruit. I still have some fruit and veg that I canned last year but I'm down to just a handful of jars. I can see why people used to call spring the starving months. Sigh.
