The First harvest

This week we got to pick and eat the first veggies:

Spinach  – I sautéed these up with garlic and onions in a little olive oil and then finished them off with a little water and a splash of lemon juice

first tomatoeTomato – went directly from the hand into my mouth!  We have lots and lots of them starting to ripen.  Since this is the veggie (which is really a fruit) that I love most, I am like a kid waiting for Christmas.  Every morning I run outside to see if there are any ripe yet. A few more days! I am trying to be patient and grown up but it is really hard.


Radishes were put in a salad using the lettuce we bought at the Farmer’s Market on Saturday. Can hardly wait for next week when we can use our own lettuce!

Made up a very simple dressing with olive oil, lemon juice, fresh basil and salt.

There are pots of herbs right outside the door – basil, marjoram, thyme, oregano, dill and epazote.

There are two big pools full of onions that we are starting to use. One of these days I may even get a picture. Right now, I have to go eat something!
