Little Harvest...

Here's the first harvest from the garden. Lots of cucumbers, kohlrabi, lettuce and strawberries. We got one tomato so far, but I expect lots more later in the season. (My fingers are crossed that the Tomato Blight stays far, far away!) The herb garden is doing well also. I'm puzzled what to do with so much parsley. There's only so much tabbouleh I can make. The mint is going crazy and I think we might need to have a Mojito party.

My best friend and I made a turkey meatloaf a few weeks back and it called for a ton of parley. It was really, really, really good. I'll see if I can get a link to the recipe from her. :)

Oh, we got even more after I took the picture. Even more zucchini and more lettuce. I even picked some peppers that I wasn't sure about.

Theres nothing like home grown vegtables..tomatoes from a grocery store ..there is no comparison and green beans from the garden are to die for. Your bounty is wonderful!

Here is a simple chart I found that tells you the best way to preserve you herb garden.

Do you have a good kohlrabi recipe? I don't know that I've ever tasted it but I have some to plant for my late garden.

Tell me when the mojito party starts and I'll be there!!

did you keep your mint in a pot before planting? It will over take EVERYTHING! That is our cilantro--it is self-sowing and we ended up with a 3x11' bed of it! There is only so much salsa I can make.
Looks yummy!

I came across a recipe for parsley pesto......martha stewart I think. It was good.

Your bounty looks wonderful.

oh, finally somebody that knows Kohlrabi. They told me it was maybe called rutabaga in the US, but I think that was wrong. It is a very simple common veggie over here, and I have a recipe for a yummy kohlrabi gratin that is super simple: thin sliced K, mix half cream, half white wine with salt, pepper and nutmeg, add to K, and sprinkle breadcrums on top & bake until (not too) soft. Yummy. You can also eat it raw which is my favorite.

Here's the recipe for the turkey meat loaf that uses parsley. It was the best meat loaf that I think I've ever had. XO
