|Thanksgiving morning, 2011|
This beauty was a volunteer from some plants from the spring season. Those were less than spectacular, and I never had a harvest, though they were pretty to see in bloom. I really wasn't expecting volunteers for a fall harvest, but there are several, and boy were they champs. Illustrates the benefits of fall gardening.
|Breaking off the outer leaves|
I am after the tender leaves of the "head" of the cabbage. The outer leaves are kept for stir fry, saute, or a baked casserole. Those inner leaves are used for dipping in the sour cream dip. Calories don't count on Thanksgiving, right?
|Finally on the table, 11/24/11|
Fresh from the garden to the veggie plate were radishes, broccoli, green onions, and celery leaves as a garnish. Garnish nothing, grand son Wesley asked if he could eat it. And did.
A good time had by all. Happy Thanksgiving.
