Window Garden 2014

IMG_0129Our CSA has almost begun! And we are so ready to have farm veggies coming out of our ears. But in the meantime, our NYC window garden has given us a hearty head start in the veggie and herb department.

IMG_0135Below is a list of treats in our garden and plans for what to do with them. We are very proud to be growing:

  • Mesclun – For Big Potluck Salads
  • Mustard Greens – Cooked with Garlic, or Raw in a Salad
  • Sweet Peppers – Baked Stuffed Red Peppers with Cherry Tomatoes, Feta and Thyme (recipe courtesy of Martha)
  • Eggplant – Being asked to choose one eggplant dish is like being asked to choose between your children… am I right, Sophie?
  • Cherry Tomatoes – With which we will do any of these fabulous 10 Things
  • Parsley – Say, in an [Oh, My] Goddess Dressing?
  • Chives – In everything. (And also Cheddar-Chive Biscuits on the occasional adventurous Sunday)
  • ScallionsPeanut Noodles
  • ThymeRoasted Potatoes with Olive Oil and Thyme
  • Sage – Butternut Squash with Sage Oil
  • Basil Vegan Pesto
  • Lavender – Lavender Honey Ice Cream, and Teas
  • The Lemon Tree – Which somehow remains still alive to this day and with which we will enjoy Lavender-Lemon Infused Gin
  • Some Flowers – Mostly for joy
  • And a cat named Rufus Waddlesworth

While the season has just begun, the leaves in our windows are just a harbinger of the harvest to come.
