I’m not the world’s best greens grower. So when I grow enough to actually feed people, I’m pretty happy.
Yesterday evening I got a chunk of time to work alone in the garden while my husband watched River. It was time for thinning out the thickly planted rows, and I harvested tiny beets, swiss chard and broccoli raab. I also took a first cutting of a patch of sweet, thin and tender lettuce. It is either Grandpa Admires (or Grandpa’s Admire?) or Cindy. Can’t remember which, but it’s one or the other. … Arugula, a little bok choi, green onions and chives.
Still all this was not enough to feed myself, my husband, my stepdaughter, and her brother. I mixed our home harvested greens in with chopped romain. We devoured this salad with homemade vinaigrette dressing and nachos.
Oh yes, and this lovely goat cheese my friend and her partner made.
