Spring in the California Garden

Thank you Mother Nature for a winter of rain.  Plants and shrubs are blooming prolifically this spring.

The garden called this weekend and it was time to put some tomatoes into the garden.  Two beefsteaks (one an heirloom) and San Francisco Fog. 

In doing some prep work, I discovered a very large beet!  Here it is root and all.  Look at those beautiful greens.
Beautiful beet from the garden atop a planting of thyme.

Visually, they are so beautiful.

Extending the Summer Garden at 32 Degrees

Skin removed, diced and ready to simmer for 30 minutes.

Ready to cool and freeze.  During the winter, this effort pays off by adding a taste of summer to cooking long after the season's end.

All From the Garden


All from the garden:  Ratatouille.

Onion, green peppers, zucchini, eggplant, thyme, cherry tomatoes.  Final product was topped with finely chopped basil.

Oh, and a few lima beans on the back burner.

Spiralized Zoodles

Spiralized my zucchini tonight to make "Zoodles."  Topped it with freshly made sauce from the tomatoes from the garden.  YUMMY!
