wicked meals from the garden anyone..Page 1 of 1    
I'm just curious if anyone got any good ideas, for meals that can be completely grown out of the garden, aside from meat. Which can always be added ontop.


thinking back to days when majority of the family food was grown, fished or hunted.

Looking for modern meal ideas, that can be made old school..

Well, I may bore you, but this is what I have made from my own garden when I had one, and what I make now with the same fresh ingrediants I get at the farmer's market: field greens, red onions, diced up eggplant, zuchinni, tomatoes,& mushrooms. I add cheese (goat and blue) some pine nuts, and about 6 oz of a bloody rare filet or med rare hunk of salmon. Add Rosemary oil with a splash of balsalmic vinegar, salt and pepper. Very healthy, low carb and filling.

This sounds fabulous and is making me crave ratatouille, which I haven't made in ages. I highly recommend it.

Methinks its time for a trip to the farmer's market as the only edibles that I have in my yard right now are herbs. Maybe next year.

...I'm going to plant me some potatoes next year too..but I'm going to have some fun with them. I have a 55 gallon plastic barrel that I'm going to put some compost in...and then plant potatoes in the bottom...as they grow toward the top..I'll just keep adding compost till it gets all the way to the top....When it's time for harvest..I'll just tip it into whatever place I want to fertilize most in the garden...and gather my bounty.

..as far as other meals from the garden..geez..you don't need much space to get a few heads of looseleaf or bunch leaf lettuce going..you can grow them all year if you've got a cold frame in a protected spot....and wilting that lettuce with a little bacon fat and vinegar is great. Zuchini's are always overgrowing people's gardens ..so you should be able to collect a few of them for frying...or baking breads with. Cabbage..is always handy to have for some slaw..or just steamed and buttered....And maybe if you're lucky enough to own a crock...you can make some saurkraut in it.

On the potatoe planting....I plant them in old/clean tires. Add soil,hay,compost and potatoes and stack more tires as they grow. Since it's well drained taste not affected.
