Okay, parents – put the Dora song in your head, “We did it, we did it, we did it, yay!” Per my previous post and many others before it, I have dreamed of a garden that could actually feed me (and others) for many years. It’s not much yet, as I only recently planted my new raised beds and still have seedlings to put into pots, but I present my first meal of the season, using vegetables from my garden! Phew! Sorry for the run-on, but I’m very excited!
Angel hair pasta with radish micro greens, peas and Parmesan. And the best food on earth….Garlic Bread! Sounds fancy, huh?
This is what we started out with. We needed to thin the radishes. So I pulled out the ones that were too close together…and found a way to eat them!
There was so much dirt I didn’t even know if I could get it all off!
But I did! Radish greens, like the tops of other roots that Americans don’t normally eat, are full of vitamins. And they even tasted good!
You can’t see them so much in this picture, but trust me, they’re there and we ate them!
“We did it, we did it, we did it, yay!”
I hope this is only the beginning of our suburban garden food.
