Recently, I’ve been posting about spring gardening tasks. I haven’t been posting as much about our spring harvests, which really are more fun. Today, I harvested a first batch of bok choy to be cooked in a stir fry.
Last week I made this salad with a spring salad mix. Fresh spring salad greens taste the best!
Also last week, I harvested this basket of bunching onions, which cleaned up nicely for yet another stir fry. I’m seeing a pattern here.
It’s so nice to really start eating out of the garden again. It makes all the work worthwhile.
What are you eating from your garden these days?
So far, only parsley! Your photography is lovely, and someone (Muriel) should do watercolors of the produce!
Congratulations on spring harvests! Our spring has been so cold and we’ve been doing so much prepping/garden renovating these last months that I haven’t really harvested anything. The chives and parsley are up, though, and we did pick a bag of nettles today, and there are pea shoots up too. I could be adding these to salads–I’m sure I was last year! But at the moment I’m too busy watching my seedlings grow, and dreaming of warmer weather ahead, I think!
Very nice! That lettuce is a beautiful shade of green…yummy!
Lovely! We really enjoy stir-frys as well because it is such a great way to use the various garden produce and the combinations of ingredients and sauces (and choice of rice or noodles to go with it!) are virtually endless which keeps it interesting and fresh (literally!).
We only have onions, rosemary and sage at the moment…*: ( I decide rather late in the game for our area to start everything from seed. The seeds are doing great just not really large enough to feel secure about placing the baby plants out in the actual garden beds. I have them on a table by the house where they can be watered easily while they are so tiny. I finally planted my squash and cucumbers this past weekend and will set the rest of the plants out in the next few days.
With terror I have watched a gang of bunnies frolicking in the yard…they seem to just be waiting for the buffet tables to be set…*: O
Praying for rain…somewhere in Texas!
I agree. It’s only recently that I’ve been able to do some harvesting and most of wild things and a few perennials but it’s so nice to finally have something green and good from outside.
I can’t wait for my first fresh spring bok choy. I love stir fries too.
