… to our table

Don’t you just love the feeling when you get when you harvest root vegetables.  It’s a magical surprise everytime since what lies underneath is hidden till you pull!.

When it comes to harvesting, I really like our wire veggie baskets – especially when it comes to harvesting root crops.  I am able to easily wash off the dirt in our outdoor old fashion galvanize sink before bringing them into the kitchen.

A basket of vegetables destined for the dinner table  – French breakfast radish & Danvers carrots

Washing off the veggies in our outdoor sink.  The “waste” wash water is diverted to our citrus trees

Look at those gorgeous veggies I can’t help but….

Snack on a few – notice the lump of carrot in my cheeks.

And in case you are wondering.  Yes, I am still wearing the shirt  I wore on Sunday!

    I can’t help but think you’ve changed! Your pictures show exactly what you do to prepare something! It’s wonderful and much like you’ve become the teacher!!! This is really helpful to people who are beginners! This is the kind of thing people really need. Maybe you are just used to taking a few pictures, but I’ve noticed this of late. Thankyou so much. C

    Beautiful veggies! My husband is hard at work building our new front yard garden. Fencing is up, boxes are built and filled with nice compost, baby plants are sitting in the sunny south window waiting to be transplanted outside once it’s warm enough at the end of May. This is our first real effort at serious vegetable gardening. Hoping for a lot of summer eats, and perhaps something to tuck away for winter as well. Wish us luck!

    Wow, you guys are an inspiration to all of us who are trying to homestead in suburbia. The pictures are wonderful.

    Thanks for sharing all your pics! Love the 17lbs of strawberries and very jealous of the lovely carrots, mine always turn out gnarly and stumpy. Cassidy is a cutie. My kitty Lori is always romping around our 5 new raised beds leaving foot prints while chasing birds and grasshoppers. What kind of mulch is Cassidy resting on?
