Way back in the early Spring, I published a post or two about preparing our tiny green garden for this season’s bounty. Almost five months later, our garden is taking shape (thanks to my green thumbed Hubby)! The tomatoes, cucumbers and basil are beginning to grow and as you can see from the picture, our corn is gaining incredible height.
In our small back garden, we have potatoes, pumpkins and honey-dew. I wish I could tell you that I was involved in this cultivating process, but my expertise lies in the “maintaining” and “picking” process. I can water the plants as needed and I am excellent at selecting the perfect ripe tomato and the crisp cucumber and the softest lettuce to accompany the night’s dinner.
As we go further into the season, I will share photos of the fruits and vegetables that grow as well as some of the delicious recipes that are not only healthy but extremely delicious.
Berry Mint Salad
1 container of strawberries
1 container for blueberries
1/4 cup of chocolate chips
(any berries will do)
3 mint leaves
Wash fruit and mint and let it dry. Cut the tops of the strawberries off and depending on their size, slice them in half. Chop the mint leaves and toss with the strawberries and blueberries in a large bowl. Cover and refrigerate for two hours. Serve the Berry Mint Salad cold and if you’d like, add a few chocolate chips morsels!
