First Homegrown Broccoli Dinner!

Here it is! The broccoli was finally ready to harvest today. It was delicious, slightly sweeter and more delicate than I've had before. We ate some of it raw but roasted most of it with a little olive oil, garlic, lemon, and parmesan.

The two cauliflower plants, which so far have consisted solely of huge leaves, are finally producing little cauliflower heads! I doubt they'll be ready to eat for at least another week, maybe two...

This compost container we have made and placed right outside the back kitchen door is clearly not beyond infiltration from a determined husky head (note the fresh broccoli pieces.)

However, she quickly gets bored with her broccoli prize. It's not apple, peanut butter, or bison, after all...
