Since my first post, the arrival of decent spring weather has allowed us to get outside and prepare the grounds for the growing season. Early crops of flowers, perennial herbs, lettuces and rhubarb have already been harvested and put to use in the kitchen. The first crop harvest was mint for the mint juleps to celebrate the 135th running of the Kentucky Derby. The lettuce crop has been bountiful providing lot's of fresh greens for salads. Memorial Day celebrations included a rhubarb pie with fresh from the garden rhubarb and a grilled salmon complemented with a fresh dill dijion sauce.
Below is a slideshow that I put together of pictures that I shot around the grounds of flowers, herbs & veggies. In future posts I will include recipes.
