Plant, Grow, Eat - Day 30 !

Day 30!
We made it!
My husband survived!

I still hope to post a recipe now and then . . . there are veggies in the garden
that are just giving forth, like my patty pan squash . . .  it was a tough go with them, 
but finally I'm getting a few . .  such is the way of gardening!

So . . . for day 30 we decided to have Mexican
Tacos with hand made tortillas
Mine of course were "fish tacos" . . . husband opted for real meat! :-)

Lori Ann's version

Michael's version

On the menu:
Fish (Salmon) Tacos, 
served openface
Made with fresh lettuce and 
Salsa (recipe below) from the garden!

Fresh Garden Salsa:
2 large tomatoes seeded and diced
1/4 red onion finely diced
1 fresh Jalapeno seeded and finely diced
2 T chopped fresh Cilantro
Juice of 1/2 lime
salt and pepper to taste.

Combine all ingredients and serve!

Thank you so much for following along with my crazy personal challenge,
it's been great fun and I've tried a few new things that I will definitely eat again!
Like beet greens!
 I've cooked more in the last month than I normally do.
 I have always loved to cook but time and work just don't always cooperate.
I think from now on I'll find a way to make more time for those beet greens!

Wow! Your garden is beautiful. I used to garden. Sigh. I need to get back to it. We moved and the soil here is HORRIBLE.
