Coming in a day late for the Weekly Photo Challenge. All week, I thought the color was designated also, as “green”. It was a whirlwind here this week. But, the weather has been wonderful, finally!! And that will often dictate where I’ll be, and what we’ll be doing. Outside. Outside. Outside! Doesn’t matter what there is to do, as long as I can be outdoors, sign-me-up!
I did manage to put together a few photos, with green as the theme. But, since it’s really about colour, I may throw in a few other colours, too.
The week started off with mustard greens, coincidentally enough. Maybe that’s why I had green on the brain? They were totally delightful, and not just because I sat out on the porch, in 70F degree weather, cleaning and prepping the greens. Fresh and local. One of our favourite seasonal foods. And, purely medicinal!
Steaming hot, with a hint of vinegar. I was so filled with anticipation that I completely forgot to make cornbread!
Some more green around the house. Well, primarily in the kitchen. “Greens” may not appeal to many, so maybe the next couple of photos will inspire a little salivation?
How about a taco? With fresh cilantro, salsa verde, and a squeeze of lime?
Last years tomatillos. And a recipe to make your own Salsa Verde. Even if you don’t grow your own, you can usually purchase them at the grocery store. These days, I prefer Verde over tomato salsa.
They produce a beautiful bushy, low growing plant, that the bees adore.
Easy to grow (I grew these from seed), and maintain. I consider this delectable plant to be, “edible landscape”.
They are prolific producers, as well.
A fine accompaniment, with green tint. This year I must try the tomatillo-black bean-tostados, shown at this website. Along with a few others!
While walking around the yard, cleaning-up and preparing for this year’s gardening, my daughter smelled something “good”, she said. (The pot is even green!)
Our Lemon Balm. Alive and well, after winter. It smells divine, and makes a wonderful tea. Also an edible landscape, it’s tasty, with a natural, relaxing, side effect. It too, is a prolific grower. You can read more about it here, if you’re interested. Oh, it’s delicious in salads, too!
New growth, and promise, from the Heirloom Apple graft.
Making our way out to the sea of Forsythia, a new shoot sprouts from last year’s growth.
A little more green and yellow, on yesterday’s walk.
And this little green-eyed Garden Prince.
Finishing up with some colour. Happy weekend, everyone!
