In My San Diego Garden and Kitchen
Here’s the kitchen part of “In My San Diego Garden and Kitchen.” Spinach from the garden and navel oranges from our tree with a drizzle of olive oil, wrapped in parchment and baked made a sumptuous meal.
The orange tree is ready to blossom so we need to use and share the navel oranges faster. My sister and I made 72 jars of orange marmalade together on Saturday. I’ll have plenty to share with friends and family over the next year. Pictures of our booty next week.
I brought this tray of my garden vegetables to my sister. She’s in a new home and doesn’t have a garden going yet.
When we stopped for lunch we had Cream of Cauliflower Soup I made earlier in the week. The recipe is from the original Moosewood Cookbook and is unbeatable.
It was a nice use for the cauliflower. I make this soup every year.
There were more broccoli side shoots this week and many more to come on the dozen plants.
With my “three family garden” there were four garden gift trays made this week. They’re all fairly similar but show the abundance of the winter garden in March. Here’s photos of two more of them.
My arugula has bolted but now I have arugula blossoms. Look for my post tomorrow on arugula blossoms.
Species freesias appear in my garden every year about this time. A bouquet fills my living room with their fragrance. There’s something special about a hand bouquet straight from the garden.
