Salad Daze

today's harvest, tonight's salad

just because they're peaking


  1. Looks like the makings of a lovely salad. What is the bunched greens in the foreground? ♥ ♥

  2. I'm looking forward to it Mom! 'Course, not all the tomatoes and cukes will make it into this salad.

    There's romaine lettuce, Renee's Garden summer lettuce, Wine Country Mesclun mix, and Pan-Pacific stir-fry mix. The stir-fry greens are good raw. Further back: curly and flat-leaf parsley, chives, and basil. (All the seeds except the beans came from Renee's Garden.)

  3. Nice to see someone is getting tomatoes. Ours are so late. Are those "Naked Ladies"? I need some!

  4. Yum! Doesn't it taste so good when it comes right out of the garden, I'm even eating the tomatoes for breakfast.


  5. It was Rohrerbot!

    Ours are late here too Victoria, except the cherries we've been getting since July. Sun Gold were the first to ripen. Once the nights started cooling off, the tomatoes started going nuts!

    Sure does Eileen! I snack on the cherry tomatoes. just about every time I pass through the kitchen. Garden Candy is a good name for them.

  6. p.s. Victoria, yep - Naked Ladies. They don't bloom a long time, but they're so pretty while they last. They can be tucked in just about anywhere since their daffodil-like foliage disappears, and when they bloom there's no foliage. They take up so little room. These are planted around a hosta, which camouflages the yellowing leaves. The hosta is late-emerging, so the naked ladies' foliage has time to get enough sun to bloom. It can take them at least a couple of years to bloom after planting. It was surprising some I moved last year already bloomed this year, especially since they weren't blooming in the previous spot at all.

  7. That looks very delicious and would have fitted very well to our diner last night:o).

  8. Yum - it was Alex! I think I'll make another one today. :) Greetings to you from the US!

  9. Linda,

    I saw your post earlier and it inspired me to clear out some container with summer annuals and make room for some fall lettuce growing. Hope the salad tasted as good as it looked!

  10. Salad makings are beautiful. Enjoy...
    My naked ladies are hiding :)

  11. Always happy to inspire folks to eat healthy foods MBT! :)

    The salad makings are coming fast and furious Balisha! Today I'm making a green bean/mushroom/cherry tomato/onion salad with vinaigrette dressing.
