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
Tomato – 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!
