Have you been Harvesting?

A woman asked me at church the other day, "Have you been harvesting anything from your garden?" Have I been harvesting? Oh, yeah!
Aside from fresh salads for lunch everyday, we have been eating well from the garden.

Spinach Salad

Sauteed with garlic and olive oil

Stir Fried with Carrots from the Garden, Garlic from the garden and onions


Broccoli and carrot harvest!
Peas with Mint
Large turnips

Cut into "french fry" shapes and baked with olive oil, salt, pepper and paprika

Turnip Fries! Yummy!
And not in photos are radishes and swiss chard and scallions and all the lovely herbs.
Yes we have been eating from the garden. We have been eating very well!


  1. Yum! Looks like you are having a super productive garden!

    Last night we had pasta topped with eggplant and onions from the garden roasted with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, with basil, oregano and parsley from the garden, and a side of fresh picked red and yellow cherry tomatos, with chunks of a purple cherokee and a green zebra tomato.

  2. That sounds wonderful, Diana. I'm at least a month away from having any harvest like that.
