This site was launched this morning, and I have been receiving some very good comments already. Thank you so much to all of you that have taken the time to comment to make my blog better.
My growing have been going on for quite a while now and although my squash plants had never gotten any pollination because of the weather, one vegetable I have been able to enjoy (fresh from the garden) is my endive and red lettuce leaves.
The other night, we had a dinner of BBQ steak bought from the market but we have also been able to sample the lettuce grown hydrologically on my balcony. Of course the plants were not mature enough to be harvested as a whole head of lettuce, but it didn’t stop us from cutting one leave from each plant to make a nice big bowl of salad. Toss them with balsamic vinegar and our own basil olive oil, it’s a dynamic green salad to go with grilled steaks.
Think about this, the lettuce will continue to grow but we can just pick a leaf off everyday to make our salad. My supply will definitely be limitless.
By the way the taste was superb (really blowing my own trumpets here) and what can be crisper and fresher than leaves picked from the plant and served on the plate in a matter of minutes?
