Surprise! More Corn!
Jill: Our garden has three stalks of corn—and we thought we’d only be getting a cob out of each of them, because that’s how many have been growing up until today. Today we found a one definite and few new potential cobs! :D
Cabbage Stir Fry!
Earlier I mentioned not knowing what to do with Claire’s and my napa cabbage, and after a little Googling, I discovered that the white stalks can be used in Chinese style stir fry. (We added some carrots from the high school garden, which we’d swung by to water earlier in the day, so that’s what the orange is!)
We added two different stir fry sauces, and threw in some already cooked chicken when the veggies were ready for eating.
And when the chicken soaked up the sauce, we served it on a bed of rice. Yum!
Peas and Green Beans!
Jill: Claire’s and my mom was going to prepare some peas and green beans for dinner, both of which we’ve been growing in our garden. Since we had some ready to pick, we prepared and cooked our own!
As small a harvest it was, it was cool to see that we’d grown peas and green beans that looked and tasted just as good as grocery-bought!
