Ohmygod, are we getting our Five A Day!
There's so much edible vegetation ripening in the yard, we find ourselves having to dutifully munch and munch. We haven't had to throw away a single thing yet. It's all getting consumed.
It's to the point that we're reluctant to buy "store" food. Even farmers market food is now designated "store-bought food."
That kinda limits my intake of proteins (but I don't think I'm allowed to raise goats or hens in my neighborhood). Which is stupid and wrong, so, yes, we're still buying cheese and meat and eggs and stuff.
Gosh, we've even bought produce, because it's the kind we aren't growing at home. But then we have to ingeniously incorporate it into the yard diet.
Take yesterday's salad. Yard lettuce, yard arugula, everything else bought. Because the beets and carrots needed using. (Beets: roasted. Carrots: thinly sliced and sauteed hard. Some toasted walnuts. A little blue cheese. Some un-fiddly dressing, any kind you like.)
