Garden dinner

Tonight we had a substantial salad based on my garden offerings. Too bad the tomatoes are not in yet although they are coming right along. It is so great to be able to feed the family at least in part with what I have grown with my own two hands. I had not gardened in so long I had forgotten the true joy of growing and harvesting food.

I wish I had more space to grow things. Living in the city on a small lot with tall trees and houses all around I have only a small patch of my yard that gets enough sun. I plan on making as much use of that patch as I can.

Wish you all could have had a bite of my salad, fresh lettuce, spinach leaves, onions, sage, rosemary and mint all just picked five minutes before.
