|Well, except for those beautiful tomato "trees"! They're growing great...just don't have any ripe tomatoes on them!|
But tonight I harvested some things from the garden, using a great big onion and some garlic for dinner!
This is the first year we've grown these so it's kind of a thrill go out and pull them right out of the dirt!
I also used some basil leaves off of my plant on our patio.
In a few weeks, when tomatoes start ripening I'll even have those to use for my Panzanella salad, a staple in the line-up of good summer recipes.
|Not my photo! It's from Gimme Some Oven's recipe for the salad which is HERE|
I always adapt her recipe, using gluten free bread toasted in olive oil and seasoned well with salt (takes about 20 minutes in a skillet to get it crunchy). I also fried some chicken in olive oil and seasoned it with salt and pepper instead of the chickpeas. And I used the white onion from the garden instead of a red one (the red is delicious though, and if I'd had one, I would have used it!).
But the concept is a winner every time; and made all the better by having fresh garden items to use for it!
