So for us, this was a time to begin transplanting plants from our greenhouse nursery to our raised beds. We're far from done, but at least our Scarlet Runner beans and Peas are now well established.

Meanwhile in the Tea Room, we had to resolve a problem with egg whites. Simply put, we had way too much of these. They are the result of making our own mayo and pastry cream from scratch.
For us, the solution was to produce meringue cookies. We decided to make chocolate marble meringues. Easy to make, they've proven to be a hit with kids and parents alike.

We'll close this week with a few pictures of some of the plants now flowering in our beds. Not only did our Chervil, Chives and young Asparagus survive this hard Winter, they are now thriving and in full bloom.
