Above: the first strawberries of the season, along with rhubarb and raspberries growing slowly but surely- yes, there will be pie!
But as for now, I will boast about this quite delicious lunch I made this week - onions, garlic, chick peas, spinach, cumin, cayenne pepper, paprika - served with pita and plain Greek yogurt. Hearty and healthy, and made great use of the spinach that's so prolific in the garden right now.
What are you harvesting and using in your kitchen this week? Join the weekly Garden to Table Challenge. See details here... This week, my neighbor blogger of Charm City Balcony Garden has won a starter pack of Asian vegetable seeds. Send me an e-mail with your address and I'll send your seeds out! Hope all you gardeners are having a fantastic spring so far!
On a different note, the spring pinks in my perennial garden are so darn pretty I could just die. I'm doing my annual persistent "look at that flower - just look at it - isn't it gorgeous". My family is quickly getting sick of it I'm sure, but so far, they're humoring me. Anyway, check 'em out on Garden Blogger's Bloom Day on the 15th...
