A Treat for the Eyes
An aspect of growing your own vegetables that you may not have thought about is that they are very pleasing to the eye. Fresh veggies can be beautiful. The tomatoes, green beans and okra from my garden earlier this year were picture perfect… so I took pictures.
Wish These Were Mine
To be honest, I did not grow these radishes. I got them from a local fruit and vegetable vendor. I had gone in for lettuce, but when I saw these, I had to have them. They were snow white on the inside, no flaws on the outside, and the radish greens were as crisp as if they had just been pulled from the ground. Radish greens can be used in salads.
How could anything, that were as pretty as these, not be delicious?
Fresh tastes good.
Besides looking good and being good for you, fresh-from-the-garden vegetables taste so-o-o good.
A couple of my favorites are green beans sauteed with a little bacon and onion and fried green tomatoes… a staple of my childhood that I still love. No cornmeal, though. They have to be dipped in flour with just a sprinkle of salt.
