garden food

I was pleased with this meal last week- the potatoes are from a box and the peas from a bag of frozen,
but the minced green onion garnish, cooked amaranth greens, turnips and dill with the peas are all home-grown. People weren't kidding- amaranth 'calaloo' has great taste! Tossed it with a bit of butter and salt, that's all. Much better flavor than collards or even leaf beet chard, very close flavor to spinach. And it loves the heat. It's growing like crazy in my garden though I've cut it back twice already. Great plant.
