Fresh Veggies and such...



There is nothing like the feeling of picking fresh veggies from your garden. This year we choose Bok Choy, Onions, Cabbage and three types of Lettuce for our winter garden. The cabbage was eaten just days after planting by either the dogs or a friendly cat. The onions were trampled and one of the lettuces never took. But we did have success with the other two types of lettuce (I never keep the name tags so I always forget what we plant), and the Bok Choy looks pretty good. Our rosemary from last spring is also doing well and that has been a pleasure to pick and incorporate into our meals. I was surprised when the eldest childrens requested lettuce on their sandwiches for school. I think it was the pleasure of having something come out of the garden as part of their meal more than it was about eating a vegetable. Hey whatever it takes. We also have a wonderful crop of Lemons and Oranges that we are still picking. The 30 or so Tangerines are long gone. Jackson made sure of that. So here is to a good winter season of veggies for us. Now I need a good recipe for Bok Choy since I have some that needs to be cooked tonight.
