Here is a picture of my first large picking from the gardens. I worked outside last Friday pulling weeds, watering, and picking. I see shortcake, salad, zuchini bread, and beans for dinner in my near future.
I've been picking strawberries and lettuce for a month and peas for a couple weeks.I have created wonderful salads- Feta with mandarin oranges; mixed vegetable with homemade poppyseed dressing; egg salad on a bed of lettuce. My family just loves the peas- we eat thm raw all the time. My girls will pick them while they are outside playing. They run and get a handful out of the fridge for a snack.
The zuchini and yellow squash is finally ready to pick. Time to make fried breaded zuchini, squash salad, and yummy zuchini bread.
