Starting to Harvest
July 7, 2019
The garden is starting to give! It’s our first harvests in the Garden Year 1 – July. Dinner menus are beginning to plan themselves and trips to the grocery store are needed less often! Absolutely loving our garden, I’m hooked for life! As a chef and foodie enthusiast, growing your own food is as wonderful as I hoped it would be! The kids are getting their hands dirty too, picking and helping, it’s our favorite place to be!
What’s Cooking in the July Garden?
We are cooking what we are growing these days! Dinner sides have been simple salads and kale chips. Garden greens are going into everything, like omelettes, Bacon Kale Spaghetti and Healthy “Greens” Hummus. We are loading up our morning smoothies with Mulberries and a few bits of spinach. The zucchinis are starting to come in and we love them just simply grilled or in batches of Zucchini Cookies.
Often my favorite thing to harvest is just beautiful flowers! Flowers around the yard and near the garden help bring those pollinators to your veggie plants, and I just love a vase of fresh cut flowers inside!
