We had some rain in California yesterday! Woohoo!!! April brought some showers just like the saying goes.
My garden received a gift from mother nature, I ate some fresh and delicious potato salad, and I got to snuggle up with my pup and watch movies. Good day!
My mom would always make this salad when I was a kid and it was such a big hit with my sister and I. If you’re a fan of Greek black olives than you’ll probably love this salad. I noticed not everyone can handle the strong flavor of olives but you have to give this salad a try or at least make it with a type of olive you do like.
Back to my little garden. It’s been doing so well, other than some little rolly pollies attacking our swiss chard. I read somewhere that if you bury a cup of beer in the dirt and just leave the mouth of the cup above the soil the rolly pollies will be attracted to the beer and they’ll drown. So far it’s been working! I know so many people that have been wanting to start a vegetable garden recently and my husband and I are so glad we did. It gives us so much satisfaction and we are learning to much. Right now my favorite part is running outside and grabbing some basil to garnish my dishes. That’s my kind of supermarket run!
