Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Firsts

So I was impatient.  So I should have waited a few more days.  But I had a hungering and though none of this is enough for one let alone three of us, they will be a nice addition to a pork stir fry or fried rice tonight for dinner.

 First head of broccoli, first snow peas and first garlic scapes.

Awesome! Our snowpeas are not doing too well, and garlic will have to wait two more weeks for scapes.

I sliced the broccoli very finely and stir fried it with the snow peas and some finely sliced celery and the garlic scopes. It was one of the four fillings we had for Vietnamese spring rolls. Delicious!

YAY!!!!!! My garden isn't doing so well either. I haven't see it in a few days, but I will tomorrow, fingers crossed. I might end up living vicariously through the gardens of others. I think I might have started too late but we'll see.

Hey, nothing wrong with being impatient if it's for something good. ;-)

Welcome, Keggy. Glad you made it here from ABY! Your comment doesn't show right away because I have to okay it by an email from my blog. That eliminates spam from posting on the blog comments.

I got two comments from you so I just deleted the second one. Please comment any time!

It's no embarassment to admit to being an impatient gardener. All veg gardeners are impatient, surely? :-)

Looks delicious. I love garlic scapes.

What a yummy combination. The first harvest is always the tastiest!
