a warm day in june

/ making a little winter salad /
today was an unexpectedly beautiful, warm day, which meant i could get out and spruce up my balcony garden a bit. it's usually dark, cold and windy by the time i get home on most days so the plants have been a little neglected since winter rolled around. but today i harvested the remainder of the lettuce and a few herbs as well as planted up two recently emptied pots with some arugula and more carrots. i would have planted more spinach, but these are low-lying planters that are far too accessible to my spinach-loving cat manolo.

on the agenda tomorrow if it's still nice: prune my oregano plant! do they last through the winter? who knows, but i'll give it a try. in the meantime i'll dry a bunch of cuttings just in case.
