cucumbers – july 2016

My cucumber vines produced a bigger harvest this year than in years past.  Could have been the soil…maybe higher quality starter plants.  In any case, I am grateful.

tomatillos – may 2016

The tomatillo plant in the background came up on its own; must have been a leftover root from the year prior.  The magic of plant life!  The tomato plant in the foreground came up on its own as well, so there must be some magic in that soil.  In any case, tomatillos make great salsa due to its natural sweetness.  It’s a hardy plant and continues to produce throughout a season.

eggs and sausage for breakfast

eggs and sauage

Scrambled eggs with some additional veggies tossed in; broccoli with red and green bell pepper to livin’ things up.  Don’t forget to include the egg yolk because it’s full of nutrients not found in the egg white.  Don’t have to go for the most expensive eggs on the shelf but not the cheapest either.  You can taste the difference; the yolk has a different look as well.  As for the sausage, I go for no additional nitrates and nitrites.

broccoli – feb 2016

A montage of broccoli in garden #3.  I planted these as younglings, and they are growing strong and healthy.  Notice in the last photo the little baby shoots coming from the main stem.  Once the main broccoli head is cut, the plant continues to bring nourishment to primal man.

swiss chard – feb 2016

swiss chard

I’m going through some primal garden photos from earlier in the year.  I’ll post these before I move onward to my current Fall 2016 photos.  Swiss chard grew nicely; the individual stem and leaf can be cut for continued growth of the entire plant. Though not my top choice, I juice, sauté, and toss these in soups.  A hearty and nutritious leafy green vegetable!
