Honey suckle... beets...

Been raining all day today...
As in last week, I am not able to work in the potager...
Still, it feels super good to go there, umbrella in hand...
just to breath in the air...
Each time, there is always something to discover... to gasp at...
This time, it was some strawberries hidden amongst the leaves...
The potager is bursting with life, as in the wild honey suckle above...
Tried growing beets for the first time...
What a pleasure it is turning out to be...
The colors by themselves, are a joy enough to gaze at...
They are a lovely addition to our menu...
We boil them lightly and then just add some vinegar...
Hmmm... real nice...
