I’ve been away from the vegetable garden for a spell and just returned from a trip out to Washington State. It was my first time visiting the Northwest and I saw awesome sights, made new friends, and had a chance to explore remote areas of the San Juan Islands.
If you noticed that your comments weren’t being moderated or that those pressing gardening questions weren’t answered in a timely manner that was the reason why. I’m back home now; still unpacking and slowly getting things in order, but will soon resume my normal routine here at Veggie Gardening Tips. Fortunately the weather cooperated while I was away and there was plenty of rain to keep the garden growing and green during my venture out west.
Washington State is a great place to visit or vacation and before now I had no idea that there was a group of islands hidden just off the coast. Canada and Vancouver Island, British Columbia are also nearby and within sight of Lopez Island where I camped out.
I spent time hiking, kayaking, and watching the wildlife that inhabits the area. There were plenty of curious seals, otters, deer, eagles, and sea lions around, but I didn’t spot any of the orcas swimming around in Puget Sound during my visit. I got used to “island time” pretty quickly and my favorite hangouts were Shark’s Reef, Iceberg Point, and Brady Beach.
The trip was actually kinda/sorta gardening related in an unusually dank and murky manner that you may find interesting and that I will share with you in an upcoming article. Until then consider this riddle; what type of plants are wild but edible, cold-blooded, slippery, nutritious, and can be extremely valuable back home in the organic vegetable garden?
