I guess it’s time to grow bitter melon. I have some seeds from Kitazawa Seed and this article about bitter melon juice potentially fighting pancreatic cancer makes it a must grow! “Researchers from the University of Colorado Cancer Center found that the juice of the bitter melon — a green squash-shaped produce with a bumpy skin — could stop pancreatic cancer cells from metabolizing glucose. This is important because cancer cells need this energy in order to survive — and blocking off their glucose supply kills them.” Read the whole article here. Look for bitter melon juice at the farm stand this summer…

This is the view from the stand looking north…terra cotta offices of LBCAP on the left…or just to the west. The house peaking over the stand of English Peas as you enter the neighborhood of Memorial Heights. Such a wonderful community!
If you look over the peas – to the other side of the mulch driveway, you will find 900 linear feet of strawberry plants. And there are little spots of shiny red fruit just starting to appear…
If you peak under the leaves…you will see there are many more on their way!!
Cheers!! The first strawberries of the season, warm from the sun…were delicious.

This morning around 7am – Shelly was getting a little disturbed by our gathering and decided to fly the coop and grab some chow…
Thanks Ladies! We gathered 23 eggs this morning…I think a week of 80 plus degrees has tricked them in to thinking it’s spring! I am also feeding them in the sunny south facing section of the garden and have made sure they can take their dust baths against the south facing wall. The micro climate there has got to be at least one zone closer to the equator…I am going to go ahead and plant the beans on the trellis’ there in our long and narrow garden bed.
Stop by for fresh eggs – and a new year of strawberries has begun- the winter root stock is already producing and the berries are in and on the table. Carrots are amazing, the romaine lettuce looked grand and the leeks are positively pristine!! There are onions, celery and much more…
