There are all kinds of lovely baby spring greens outside to pick. I like to use them as a side salad. Even tastier is having them sautéed in a little olive oil. It’s fun turning common weeds into a gourmet meal. If you are having guests, you can walk around the yard before dinner and pick your own salads (please only do this if you know what plants are edible and ensure that they have not been treated with pesticides).
Can you tell I’m looking forward to the garden being ready? I am definitely ready for some fresh produce again. I suppose I should get through the rest of last year’s crop too. I go from trying to make our stored produce last, to having a backlog when I don’t use it up in time.
Looks like we’ll be having having plenty of opportunities to use up veggies this month, as sides or in dishes like the Chicken Primavera over Rice. Stir fries are also great dishes to incorporate frozen veggies such as peppers, peas, squash and carrots.
