The garden is looking very full right now. We are still only eating peas, raspberries, zucchini, and lettuce from it. But I think it is time to start eating carrots and potatoes too. And collard greens are finally almost ready too. Then we will feel like we are getting a lot from the garden I think.
This week I experimented with a couple of flat breads. Great to have something just to go along with salad. I just did some pizza dough and spread it with garlic and olive oil and then chose toppings. First I did spinach and basil and oregano from the garden, tomato slices, and sundried tomatoes. The second one I used zucchini from the garden along with tomato slices and just garlic.
And for our appetizer we had a couple of carrots from the garden. They tasted pretty much like store bought carrots - I thought they were supposed to taste even better. Oh well.

I bought 2 brand new (to us) types of vegetable from Bailey's Local Foods recently and today we tried them both. The first was kohlrabi (German for turnip cabbage). I fried it with sugar and nutmeg. We both really liked it. The second was rapini, the leafy Italian broccoli. I just steamed that and neither of us liked it all that much.
I served them with honey baked lentils (http://happyfoody.blogspot.com/2006/10/honey-baked-lentils.html) and roast potatoes. The potatoes were our first taste of local organic potatoes from Bailey's. They were really really good.
