Breakfast Time!

2016-06-23 09.00.17

Today I decided I would make breakfast with vegetables from my garden.  The garden is small and some of the vegetables are already getting sparse, but I was able to include beets, two kinds of carrots, spinach, chard, yellow squash, a squash blosssom, a potato and basil. I realized later that I forgot to include a zucchini and I chose not to use my last bok choy plant.

I was particularly excited about the beet because I’ve never had any luck growing them.  But today the one I pulled out was BIG, at least in comparison to any I’ve had in my garden in the past.

I decided I would steam them with a bit of dill. They tasted uttamam! (Uttamam means “very good” in Sanskrit.)

Later, I realized that I could have cooked some of the beet greens, but I know the worms in my two worm bins will thoroughly enjoy eating all of the scraps.  It seems fitting since they deserve a lot of the credit for the harvest.

I am still very much a beginning gardener.  I love how much I learn each year

    1. While the Bok Choy was growing I would have a plate of that with eggs on top.

      More often I’m drawn to cereal and fruit or pancakes but I’m wanting to increase the vegetables!

      1. Thanks for the laugh! Luckily it doesn’t affect me that way. If I was eating oats or lentils or some beans it would be a different story.


I would love to hear from you!
