Eric's vegetable garden - where the greens are picked for the table....

Green onions soaking up the sun.

The lettuce head in its glory!

Radishes sweet and spicy!
Eric's vegetable garden is boasting  with rows and rows of tomatoes, garlic, lettuce, cabbages, potatoes, chives, basil, green onions, and I can go on and on. This to me is a feel good garden. A garden that sustains and feeds both body and soul. The first time we picked the radishes, I asked Eric, what do  you do with the leaves? If we can eat the roots surely the leaves will just be as wonderful. And true enough, Linda and I cleaned the leaves and sauteed it in olive oil and garlic and wow! It did not disappoint us! The taste is a bit spicy and tangy just like arugula. Perhaps they are cousins!
