2009 Veggie Garden Review in Pictures

2009 Veggie Garden in Review
2009 Veggie Garden Mosaic

Well… yesterday, the first day of November, I harvested the very last of my veggies, the single head of radicchio that didn’t bolt in the spring, the teeny parsnips and the skinny leeks. We grilled the leeks and the radicchio and dressed them simply with a little balsamic, lemon, olive oil and salt and pepper, and they were fantastic. The parsnips we gently roasted in the oven. They were a little bland, and clearly could have taken a really hard frost (this supposedly improves their flavour). I had thought they’d gotten enough lighter frosts but I guess not. It’s the first time I’ve grown them so I wasn’t sure exactly when to pull them up.

So in reflection of another veggie gardening season gone by, I thought I’d put together a little mosaic tribute to the bounty produced by my modest patch (every corner of our little urban plot that I can squeeze a growing thing into).

    Its amazing how much produce (and work!) a modest plot can generate! Good for you for maximizing your lot’s potential – its inspiring indeed!
