|Turnip and Radish Saute|
Remember the planter that the naughty kitty liked to sleep in, even after I stuck some branches in it in hopes of keeping him out of it?
|In the Planter|
Not surprisingly, the radish and chard seeds that were planted in there didn't do too well, but, still, I managed to get about 5 or 6 radish plants from that planter. Today, I picked the last of the radishes that were growing in there and sauteed them, along with the turnip I picked the other day!
I heated up a little vegetable oil and sesame oil in a pan, added the sliced radishes and the cut up turnip, along with their greens (chopped up a bit), seasoned it with chili flakes and soy sauce, etc., and sauteed it. The turnip greens were a bit bitter, but, eaten with rice, chicken curry, and peach chutney, my daughter said it was quite palatable.
The broccoli floret and the chard leaves that were picked along with the turnip were added to a pot of boiling water in which some frozen cheese ravioli was being cooked and served with leftover spaghetti sauce.
I am grateful for:
- This year's vegetable harvest!
- Every leaf, stem, root, and pod from the garden that is added to our meals
- Water for the garden
- Fertile soil and soil amendments
- M's help with tending the garden
Today's joyful activity was picking a few more vegetables from the garden, and cooking and eating them!
