It is time for a celebration of green things! The holidays have been kind to our little vegetable patch and we wanted to share some of the lovely living things that are growing in our garden. Many of the green leaves are at the stage where I will need to start planning recipes to use them up! We did cook some of the beetroot stalks this week – with capers, olive oil, lemon juice and a little pepper (as per this suggestion) – they were very tasty!
“O the green things growing, the green things growing, the faint sweet smell of the green things growing! I should like to live, whether I smile or grieve, just to watch the happy life of my green things growing”
