Today as we were harvesting, a neighbor leaned over the fence to talk about our garden. She asked who built the chicken coop and if we were growing habanero peppers. She said she was getting ready to make a garden too, but wanted to grow mostly medicinal plants. Just the idea of it made me hungry.
Jonathan gave her a bunch of mustard. It is so young and tender right now that you can eat it raw. Today for lunch at school I had a big salad of mustard greens, tomatoes, arugula and a boiled egg, all from the yard.
