For the Love of Greens

Food - Greens TreatMy garden greens have gone nuts this summer!  This is a mouthful of interesting flavors:  1 leaf each of kale, lettuce, garlic chive, and sorrel.  Wow, what a pop in the mouth!

Food - Lettuce harvestHere is my enormous harvest just soaked, spun and about to get packed into a bucket for the refrigerator.  I love that even though I live in a woods, greens don’t need full sun to grow.  The lettuce, sorrel, and chives all returned on their own, too.  The lettuce is trying hard to get to flower and seed, but I keep cutting it before that can happen.  I think I might get one more cutting before I will have to let it go.  That’s ok, it will pay me back next year with all the dropped seed coming up again!

Food - Lettuce harvest 2This is the best laugh.  I’ve rescued a bucket from a local bakery’s recycling bin.  The bucket originally held “E-Z Use Garlic Spread.”  First ingredient?  Partially hydrogenated oil – yuck!  Not anymore – now it’s filled with gorgeous greens ready to eat.  It’s now the E-Z Use Green Bucket!
