    I’m stealing the idea from the “What did you plant today?” thread of what did you take from your own garden to eat or make something with?

    I plucked off my first lot of lettuce leaves to make a salad. This is the first time I have ever eaten anything from my own garden. Yay!

    Well done Felicity,

    We started our garden last year and this feeling lasts. Each new flower and budding fruit or vegetable, ripening into something to eat, is just amazing. Then you taste it, wonderful.

    We had our first broccoli on the weekend. It even smells better.

    yesterday we harvested three jade perch, some ceylon spinach, some parsley, some brazillian spinach, some garlic chives, some chives, some sweet leaf. This got cooked up with some rice for a very nice dinner 😀

    Tonight I’ll pick some more of the greens for the salad to go with fajitas 😀

    Yum, Jaymie – I’m so jealous of the aquaponics! I am trying to convince DH that we need one!

    I haven’t harvested today yet, but we will be having a soup made from choko, leek, pumpkin, garlic and some greens like silverbeet and mizuna. I’ll add some homemade lamb stock (not our lamb though!) and poach one of our eggs for each bowl. The extra protein gives the vege soup more sticking power and adds a yummy dimension when the yolk, half cooked runs out into the soup. MMMM!:D

    I have just been grazing and ate some snow peas and cherry tomatoes. I really need to find some more things to do with chili, capsicum and silverbeat! (or find someone to swap with).

    There was a thread like this somewhere in the depths of the forum…was getting a bit big anyway…um for our meal tonight I have dug some spuds, put some pork in the slow cooker this morn, plucked a few chillis and will add homegrown pumpkin, celery, lettuce and maybe a bok choy.

    lettuce and cucumber for our sandwiches and zucchinis for more relish..Isn’t it great to pick your lunch Felicity!

    I noticed that I will be able to munch on snow peas and tomatoes again very soon and the rocket is nearly ready too…..YAY the broccoli will be ready to pick in a few weeks and i can’t wait to sink my teeth into it…fresh and uncooked.

    What a great harvest of tomatoes Em.:tup:

    Elliceh, they turn from green to a real red colour. Its so red that you can see it from the outside. How is your cutting going that I sent you.

    I’ve been taking bits off my one for the last few months, and have been sticking them in all around the garden but they don’t seem to be doing anything at all. Maybe once it starts to warm up again they will take off.

    They are so easy to look after Jen and Suz, just stick a piece in the ground and it never needs watering, never gets any bugs and has the most wonderful flower, which only lasts one night.
