~Food from the Garden~

 

Fresh lettuce from the garden.

I’ve harvested all the lettuce I could, now I must plant more.  I need a long flat trough- type vessel to maximize production. I love being able to eat my fresh lettuce.  It tastes so much better than anything from a store and it’s pretty.

First little harvest of peas and tomato’s.

Beans and tomato’s. I love cherry tomato’s.

Teeny tiny carrots. I got excited and pulled some out to see what was what. I think this is “short and sweet” variety.

More tomato’s and my first little yellow squash. Yummers.

A humble first harvest, prepped and ready for dinner.

My first garden dinner.  Quinoa Veggie Medley. It was good!

 

Ever since reading In the French Kitchen Garden, I had dreams of creating a little potager garden outside my own kitchen where I could wander out and pick a few things for dinner. Many years have passed since I first read this book, but I am slowly, very slowly beginning to achieve what I read about so long ago. Losing the tree last year has left us with much more sun right outside my kitchen, I take my blessings where I can find them, I am thankful for my little sunny patches. I want to find this book and read it again. It is a very lovely book.
