adventures in gardening, surfing, and family
What gorgeous harvests you've had this week! I'm drooling over your strawberries!!! Mine are just beginning to set fruit :-)
There are some thing that grow extremely well in coastal California, and strawberries are one of them. I love them - I believe they are the one fruit I can never get tired of. Good luck with yours!
WOW! How many artichoke plants do you have? Your harvest is so awesome!
The short story is that we started last year with 8 plants. At the end of the year, all the plants died, but grew three small plants in each spot. Now we have at least 18 plants of different sizes, but they are all producing. We have been preserving many in olive oil, and the vast majority are being eaten. I brought a bunch to a friend's birthday party last weekend, and they were a hit.
Oh wow! That is a lot of artichokes. What do you do with so many?
My current favorite method of eating them is as follows: 1. Steam until cooked, but not over cooked. 2. Cut in half and remove hairy choke. 3. Marinate for a couple hours in olive oil, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, and grated ginger. 4. Grill on the bbq for 5 minutes on each side. We have been searching for ways to eat them without butter, and this was is great.
heyhey! That is what northern mulberries look like. Whatdoyaknow?! LOL.
They are from a Pakastani Mullberry tree. They are extremely tasty! I have never heard anyone call it a Northern Mulberry though. Where have you seen them before?
so many artichokes! amazing harvest...I'm dreaming of parsnips
I was going to ask what the fruit that looked like a long mulberry was. I guess it is a mulberry. What a fabulous harvest.
I'll enjoy the images. Lucky you! You get to enjoy the eating!
