from the garden to my lunch bowl in 20 minutes


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.

    That, is why I love it so much. It tastes great and is so fun to grow. I have been harvesting my own salad for a month now, and cannot believe how much better it is from any store bought foods. I owe some gratitude to you, as you and Chris inspired me to do my own little mini garden at my house.Beautiful picture as well! Perhaps I will do some pictures of my feasty treats! =)
