Our first road side salad this year . Laughing 
imagine going along the road , hanging out the passengers door and grabbing from the road side a few :-
Leaves of salad bowl lettuce, leaves of Lollo Rosso lettuce , Chinese long radish , French breakfast radish , liquorice & anise basil ,chervil , coriander , lavender tips , small beet root leaves , thyme , white Lisbon spring green onions & a few small nasturtium leaves .

Made as a simple plain salad ( no dressing or oils etc. ) with thin sliced ham , a dessert spoon of potato salad , one of coleslaw and one of sweet beet root salad with a decent sprinkle of soft double Gloucester & chive cheese over the coleslaw .
Oh my goodness I've just drooled over the keyboard Wink

Tomato Soup

Post  bnoles on 7/2/2013, 12:46 pm

I planted only 2 cherry tomato plants, yet have them coming at me by the bucket loads.  That m/m is some good stuff for sure.

We decided to try our hand at tomato soup, something we have never done before.  My wife and I had 2 bowls each for lunch today and it was off the scale.  Very easy and very healthy.

Added fresh kale from the garden for my green drink. And for tonight I'm gonna oven roast my first head of broccoli. I have some ribeyes marinating in chocolate balsamic vinaigrette, cilantro & onion infused olive oil, salt, pepper, and fresh from the garden licorice basil. Then I'm gonna saute some mushrooms with scallions from the garden. And some mashed taters with chives from the garden.

Hi Cheryl5 and welcome to the forum!  We were visiting an open house for sale nearby and saw some artichokes growing in the garden there.  Very cool.   Sounds like you've got a lot growing.  I hope you'll join us in the PNW forum and share some pictures!

Lettuce and snap peas! It's too early here for tomatoes or peppers, but we've got our first cherry tomatoes on the way.

Well, I don't know if I'm gonna eat it or what, but I picked my first okra pod!

Jing Orange okra...I don't remember even seeing the flower, but then here this beauty is pointing at me when I went out there this evening. Dime for scale.



Yay, I guess? My okra plant has had a rough life, and is still only maybe a foot tall.

I think my sunflower plant can take me in a fair fight...it's taller than me, and it keeps giving me dirty looks. Shocked

Two nights ago my son served the poblano peppers I had grown in pots in the greenhouse.  He stuffed them with rice and ground lamb and then grilled them.  O MY they were GOOOOOOD!   There are Anaheim peppers coming and I can barely wait.

Last night we had our first ripe tomato sliced on top of beef stroganoff.

Our first maters! Granted, they are Sungold cherries, but still...

I know that one is ready but I'm hoping that 3 of them are going in the just harvested red & green lettuce/onion/pea sprout salad tonite:

And our potato salad has SFG scallions in it. woot woot!

I've got beets, carrot week carrots, and garlic roasting in the oven to accompany some chicken parmesan.  The weather here is rainy so we skipped the 4th of July barbecue effort.  It sure smells great in here.  Smile  Then there is homemade brownies from scratch, not sf garden ingredients but something my Rick and I don't have to share with the kids since we became empty nesters  Twisted Evil  lol.

Don't know, but my spinach is starting to bolt in this HOT weather, 102 on 7/02, So I may have a spinach salad with radishes and some mustard greens. Olive oil, vinegar, crushed garlic, coarsely-ground black pepper, parmesan, etc.

So you made this homemade tomato soup using cherry tomatoes?  I wanna try it!  It looks wonderful.  Can you post the recipe you used in the recipe section?  My girls love tomato soup.

I forgot to start any red cherry tomatoes this year which meant I bought a Bonnie Grape at Walmart.  On the Fourth I harvested some red tomatoes.

I stuck a quarter in the bowl to gauge the size which are from grape to teeny weeny.  As for taste, sort of bland but maybe they'll improve later in the season.

I also harvested more super sugar snap peas and a Golden
Globe turnip.

A few days ago I ate a Fourth of July tomato. It was small but yummy. Today I ate a sprig of deep green parsley. It is supposed to be good for the breath and also healthy.

A half-dozen Sungold cherry tomatoes and a green pepper, San Marconi Giant, I think it was.  They get red, but since it had sunburn, I plucked it unripe.  Fried half of it, along with some more sunburned ones I got the other day, along with some onions, and diced and kept some raw for crunch, then made bean burritos.

The lone Japanese Ichiban eggplant I got is the only thing that has been much of a producer so far.

Eggplant! After hand pollinating every morning before I go to work, we were able to get our second Eggplant. We currently have 5 growing on our 2 plants, but I have to hand pollinate every morning to keep them growing. I had to to that all the veggies this year due to a lack of Bees. I miss the bees in the garden Sad

Gave up on the radishes with lots of leaves and no bulbs -- I am turning the leaves into soup.

I also am getting a nice crop of lettuce leaves and salad greens along with wax beans, yum salad! If it tasted like this all year, I'd lose weight from skipping dressings.
