Beet Greens

A perk of having a high tunnel is that you can eat fresh produce even when there is an arctic blast!!
Here is a delicious recipe that I was inspired to make earlier:

beet greens with almonds
1 bunch of beet greens cut into strips
3 Tbsp of oil or bacon drippings
1/4 cup almonds
salt and pepper to taste

Warm the oil in a pan and add the beat greens. Cover and let steam for about 4 minutes, until they are soft but still retain their crunch and are vibrant. Add the almonds and salt and pepper to taste. Serve and enjoy!

And some broccoli rabe grown from my seed

What’s growing in your greenhouse?

Baby tomatoe!

Look what’s popping up! To see new growth and the beginnings of life after a dreary winter is very rejuvenating. I love the parallel of a seed to our life: with good nutrition and positive environment we can all grow and thrive to be the strongest and best we can be!

Planting time!

Finished planting tomatoe, basil, eggplant, and pepper seeds last night in these lovely jiffy peat pots (totally buy them: theyexpand when you put them in water!)
Will let you all know when the first sprouts are up!
