This is my lunch today – all chopped up and mixed together into a personal-sized salad. We haven’t been doing a very good job at documenting the food we’ve been producing this summer and the meals we’ve been getting out of it. We realize *gasp* how terrible this is since producing our food is one of the primary goals of our project. Julie is currently preparing a blog post to give you a look at the variety of meals we’ve been eating straight from our own land, but in the meantime, I thought I’d throw up a quick snapshot of my simple lunch today.
In 20 minutes, I went outside and harvested the lettuce, beets, tomatoes, carrots, radishes, green onion and beet greens that you see in the photo, brought them back inside, chopped them up and now I’m happily munching away at them while I type. I swear the greens are still warm from the sun.
Yes, we live the good life. Grow your own. You won’t be sorry.
