Spring greens…

I know it’s a modest harvest yet I was thrilled to pick the first greens grown in our kitchen garden and make a salad for lunch with red and purple lettuce, parsley, basil and stevia leaves. I also added some cherry tomatoes (from the farmer’s market not the vegie patch, though I noticed the tomatoes I planted have some baby ones starting to form!)

  1. Lovely! Home-grown always tastes better…

  2. Oh, it’s such a thrill to eat home-grown produce Zoe, no matter how small the harvest. I’ve kept the tradition of growing a special radicchio from Trieste that my father used to grow. The veggie patch is at my mother’s place and it’s a joy to treat it like a baby while it’s growing and then reap the rewards. I blogged about it last year: http://ambradambra.wordpress.com/2012/06/04/the-secret-radicchio-society/

  3. The tomatoes are coming along and there are eggplant and purple capsicum flowers forming too, which is exciting! Now, if only it would rain…
