|The chef picking silver beet.|
We have been trying to establish a veggie patch for a couple of years now, but without much success.
However, last summer things improved a little and we were able to harvest some veggies for the cooking pot.
Now that winter is almost here some veggies are coming to an end. As we are going away soon we are going to dig in the beans and pull up the lettuce for eating instead of just taking the leaves as usual.
Fresh lettuce for lunch. Wash and.........
There is something very satisfying about growing your own. (especially when you're new at it)
Chef will make his famous salad sauce with these ingredients.
(notice there are 3 Swiss ingredients in the middle)
But wait there is something missing.......
out to the garden again
|Now the sauce is done.|
Silly me didn't take a pic of the final meal of quiche (sweet potato, leek, zucchini and mushroom) with ham, lettuce, tomato, cucumber, carrot, cheese, beetroot, asparagus, avocado, gornichons, pickled onions and olives. (We had a visitor for lunch)
