Plant, Grow, Eat - Day One

Today is August 1st.

It is also: 

This "Green Man" visited us last year
 from the Cypress trees. Can you see him?
The first Harvest arrives with Lughnasadh, the Celtic festival held in celebration of the first fruits of the harvest on August 1st.  As the Green Man’s foliage begins to change colors , we begin harvesting in our gardens, making bread from our grains, storing the fruits of our gardens for winter and celebrating another year of the earth’s bounty.

A fitting beginning to my Plant, Grow, Eat challenge don't you think?

As we are still getting the last bits of asparagus from the garden I thought I would begin there.

Tomatoe, Asparagus and Feta Fritatta

On the menu:
Tomatoe, Asparagus & Feta Fritatta
(see Recipes page )
Sliced tomatoes
Roasted Mild peppers stuffed with feta.

Quite a lovely meal for day one!
