In My San Diego Garden & Kitchen 12-14-15

Burgundy and orange in the garden this week.

Red lettuce leaves harvested last week. Their color seems to intensify with the cool nights. And also a few of the strawberry guavas, about an inch or more in diameter represent several pounds gathered recently.

I’m picking a handful of Satsuma tangerines each week to spread the enjoyment of a small crop. Navel oranges are plentiful and deliciously sweet now.

A guava-blueberry-kefir smoothie. Blossoms on my blueberry bush but no blueberries.

A volunteer calendula and I’m thinking about the petals for a salad at lunch today.

And with only a handful of blooms in the garden this week, I settled for a foliage bouquet: Vitex purpurea, dusty miller and rue.

Head over to Our Happy Acres to see what other gardeners are harvesting this week.
