I love foraging for flowers in the city – there are many lovelies growing in plain sight!
Our urban garden has been soaking up the sun and rain and the spring harvest is in full swing with lots of mixed salad greens, herbs, and radishes. Peas, beets, and cilantro are on the horizon!
I made some herbal tea blends that I’ve enjoyed immensely! I’m looking forward to growing and drying more herbs for tea and cooking next year.
In winter, I crave creamy starches in potatoes and other roots, and latkes are a lovely rich winter treat fit for a new year. Herbs like parsley, carrot tops, and green onions give these latkes a bright freshness.
A large tomato harvest came and went, sun loving plants like okra and eggplant have begun producing fruits, and planted the first succession of fall roots and cooler weather herbs.
I can finally create my own dried herbs for winter seasoning or herbal infusions. I’ve been drying rosemary, sage, oregano, lavender, and more.
The garden is a straight up jungle right now, and it’s incredibly rewarding to be eating food that began as a tiny seed in March!
Tabbouleh is a filling meal that is fresh and cool on a warm summer evening. It’s also a great way to use some of those CSA greens!
