Today’s Harvest

June 24th, 2008

This morning I harvested some lettuce, beet greens, and nasturtiums for a salad for lunch. I’ll probably make some lemon vinaigrette and top the salad with almonds and a few local strawberries.

I also harvested my first head of broccoli, it looked like it was going to start to flower so I decided it was time to harvest. I’m not sure what kind of broccoli it is, I bought a packet of seeds at the local hardware this spring for 5 cents and it didn’t give a name. I steamed the broccoli and topped it with a little olive oil, garlic salt and some freshly ground pepper.

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!


This is a daily journal of my efforts to cultivate a more simple life, through local eating, gardening and so many other things. We used to live in a small suburban neighborhood Ohio but moved to 153 acres in Liberty, Maine in 2012.

This year I decided to try to grow some pumpkins. Hopefully they will be gracing my front porch this fall....
