Starting the Harvest

When I planted my garden at the beginning of April I wasn’t completely sure that there wouldn’t be some winter weather that would kill it off. There have been a couple of small snowfalls but nothing with the kind of cold that kills off cold weather vegetables, and this week we ate our first salad, (mostly), from the garden. I have spinach, two kinds of lettuce, and radishes in abundance, and with the addition of a tomato, a cucumber, some avocado from the store, and some home made croutons, (a new batch – made with various different leftover bread), and some Roast Garlic & Fresh Herb Vinaigrette we ate quite well the other day, (the bison burgers with the salad helped too).

Since I now have a camera here are some photos.

This is what was left after I took everything I needed for a salad!

The biggest radishes, ready for salad, (well, some went into the fridge for later).

  • What is Choices That Matter?

    I'm a guy named John, and I do most of the writing around here. I went from a really active lifestyle to a really inactive lifestyle very quickly and my body is noticing. On top of that I'm worried about what's happening to our planet, so, I'm trying to do something about it.

    For Christmas I received the book Food Matters, which I found very interesting and inspired me to start changing. Check out my first post for the beginning of the story.
