This evening we went to our first garden at our old apartment to see how our garden is doing. We haven't been in almost 2 weeks so we feared it would be all dried out. Luckily our housemates have been watering it for us, and we arrived to a beautiful, filled out garden.
We did a bunch of weeding and harvesting. We harvested: 4 kohlrabi, a cup or so of peas, a huge bowl of lettuce, spinach, and cabbage leaves. There are carrots, beets, onions, broccoli, wax beans, potatoes, horseradish, and more of everything above on the way.
In a matter of minutes, we had collected enough food for a dinner for three. We made a peanut satay style sauce, made some rice, and stir fried the veggies. We hope this is the beginning of a long season of home-grown, home-cooked meals.
Here's roughly the recipe for our dinner:
kohlrabi (greens and root)
potato, onion, garlic
Sauce (all bought ingredients):
1 can lite coconut milk
1/4 c peanut butter (could have used a bit more)
