Vegetable Recipes for Gardeners Who Cook and Eat

There isn’t much point in growing all of those vegetables unless you can enjoy eating them.

I like to cook almost as much as I like to spend time in the garden and they are such complimentary activities. I’ll try to provide you with some of my favourite ways to prepare vegetables although I don’t pretend to be a professional cook book author.

The best recipe for many vegetables is always:
1. Walk to garden
2. Pick
3. Eat

I have two basic ways that I like to utilize the vegetables that I grow. The first is a quick and tasty method of getting them from the garden to the plate. The second is a way to use and store the abundance that the garden seems to produce. I’ll try to give you some of both as we wander through the growing season and the vegetable garden.

Keep coming back to these pages to see what we might be having for dinner that night.
