We grew it and we ate it

Well, our garden is thriving. We have a ton of stuff popping up every day. Some of it we can even identify! On the deck, we've sewn a few galvanized planters with a variety of seeds and our arugula/lettuce mix was ready to eat today!
Doc didn't need any convincing to collect our salad.
Emerson hearts arugula.
I threw together a simple green salad of steamed kale and arugula with a tangy tahini garlic dressing.
I also made some yellow pea soup, based on the Swedish soup that Fanny made while visiting, and roasted garlic couscous. It was a really nice dinner, especially sitting outside in the setting sun on our newly painted Craigslist chairs with our lovely new Etsy cushions.


  1. That is the prettiest tub of lettuce I think I've ever seen!

  2. Summer , ace, Disney..poof.

  3. Thanks! We think it's a pretty tub of lettuce too! :)

  4. Yay for harvesting salad! I'm pleased to see you had mustard with the soup again!

  5. Very jealous of your back yard set up!
