Pictures From Our Garden

Beautiful irises in bloom. Did you know that Iris is a genus of 260-300 species of flowering plants with showy flowers. It takes its name from the Greek word for a rainbow, referring to the wide variety of flower colors found among the many species.














In April, we'll be helping kids from the Mare Island Health and Fitness Academy make coleslaw using cabbage and carrots from our garden. Here's the coleslaw recipe we'll be using:

6 cups shredded cabbage
1 cup shredded carrot
2/3 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons vinegar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 1/2 tablespoons sugar, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste

Toss cabbage in a large bowl with the carrots. In a bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients. Pour the mixture over the cabbage and carrots and toss to coat thoroughly. Refrigerate until serving time.

Serves 6.




























Can you identify the plants in the pictures above?
