The Garden Spot, Week 12

A Forest of Chives

Twelve weeks of gardening, and I can finally enjoy the fruits of my labor! Well, not so much fruits as herbs.

A few days ago I went out onto the balcony and plucked basil, rosemary, and chives, all ready to be chopped up and thrown into a lovely herb crusted chicken dish – which I of course, forgot to take a picture of.

However, now that food-eating season is upon us, I plan to start including lots of my favorite recipes and tutorials. After all, I grew these plants for a reason! And that reason is for them to be in my mouth.

Some of my favorite summer recipes are things like simple Caprese salads, grilled corn with lots of butter, asparagus (by the way, RIP my asparagus, they did not like it outdoors), and most kinds of mojitos. What are some of yours? Are you picking up what they are putting down at the new McGolrick farmer’s market? Tell me everything @everydaycaitlin
