Garden to table- May 31



Tonight's garden to table involves squash, zucchini and eggplant mixed to make a delicious frittata. (Kind of like a cross between an omelete and a quiche). Healthy vegetables straight from the garden. Of course, we love snacking on fresh cucumbers too.
The finished product is below.

The first picking

Our first true harvest of the year came Friday, May 25th.
It consisted of squash, eggplant, zuchinni, cucumbers, jalapenos and a few raspberries. There is definitely more on the way. In fact the next day we brought in red chard, green beans, radishes and eggplant.
Looks like a great meal coming up.

Welcome

Welcome to my blog.
The main focus of this blog will be to highlight what is growing in our garden and how we are using the vegetables to eat healthy. The blog will serve several purposes. One, it will give me an archive year to year as to just what we planted and what was successful, funny how it's harder to remember that.
Secondly, it will also alert you as to when we are overloaded and need to share what we have.
Be sure to follow for updates.  Remember buy local, eat healthy.
