Garden salad

You have to love Vancouver Island! While Calgary has been struggling with snowfall in June, we are enjoying a beautiful springtime on the Island. For the past week or so, Krista has been making salad from the garden. Tonight Jan and I did the same. There is something about fresh greens -spinach and several varieties of heirloom lettuce- that you just can't buy in plastic from the store.

The wild salmon berries are already ripe and the summer promises to bring an abundance of vegetables and fruit from our small acreage. What an amazing difference from the Calgary region!
