I just got back to the house from the garden with the beginnings
of a salad for tonight. This is my first time growing carrots,
beets and broccoli. The carrots are petite and do not get as long
as those in the produce dept. at the store..but they are very big on flavor.
Did you know that the carrot tops are full of nutrients...I use the inner
tender leaves in salad...I do not find them bitter but it takes some
adjusting to the texture. Here's a link if you would like to check it out.
I will slice the beets with the vegetable peeler...and tender inner beet leaves also go in the salad.
And the broccoli...I was amazed..this grows about 12-15 inches from the ground and
there are 2 to 3 bunches on the stalk. My next adventure will be...what can I do with
the broccoli leaves and the cabbage will be ready in a few weeks.
