First Greens From the Garden

I interrupt this temporary blogging hiatus to announce the first garden harvest of the season!

This spinach is out of control! The leaves are getting bigger than my head, but are still sweet and tender. I have no idea what I planted. (I look WAY too tired in this picture.)

So I did what anyone would do when faced with bowls of arugula, kale, and spinach. I made pizza. :) This one is goat cheese, sauteed kale and garlic, chili flakes and apple sausage. Not pictured was the arugula and prosciutto pizza (always a favorite), spinach and feta pizza, and zucchini, olive, roasted garlic and parmesan pizza. That should keep us going this week for lunches. Have eaten anything from your garden yet?


  1. I see a combination of fatigue and pride in that photo. Congratulations on the harvest!

  2. Pea pods - sauteed with ginger and garlic ... the symbol for me that spring is truly underway ... and arugula and tonight, chinese cabbage. The weeds are growing as fast as the plants ....
