spring greens, beets and broccoli oh my!

pretty spectacular harvest we're having at the hippychick universe this morning
- oh mama -
  • chard
  • beets
  • brocolli
  • spring peas
  • radish
  • radish pods
  • chinese cabbage
  • carrots
and of course
  • eggs from the chickenchicas
i can tell you right now how it's all going down.

the beets and carrots will be slow roasted to bring out their yummy sweetness. the beet greens will saute' with garlic, lemon juice and a bit of balsamic vinegar - ohh yeah

the chinese cabbage will join the broccoli, the radish pods and the sweet peas in stir fry happiness land along with thinly sliced carrots and chardy bits. there might even be a bit extra to share with the chickenychica's and the wabbit wabbit.

the radish will be enjoyed in the company of lettuce greens
or play a trio with a bit of carrot and lemony juice

the radish greens go to the creatures.
everyone enjoys!
ah happiness

it always tastes better when you grow your own!

Hi Chick. Nice looking veggies. How do you like the radish pods? I bet it's starting to get warm in your neck of the woods. Tomorrow I will start my peppers and tomatoes inside. Feels like winter still. Take care and stay cool.

the radish pods are great! thanks so much. i'll be eating them for many years to come.

it is getting warm here. this past week has been perfection - cool mornings in the 40's and 50's with the afternoons heating up the the 70's and low 80's. if it would stop right there, it would be perfect.

aha! you're starting your veggies. any new and ingenious plans for keeping the deer away from your goods this year round?

good to hear from you.
