While it’s gardening season, expect most of my blog to be about my container garden and less about vintage stuff 🙂 I will post pictures of the spring jacket I’m making, but that’s for later! So here’s what’s new! I also got two new blueberry bushes, but those aren’t doing anything very spectacular at the moment. Most of my seeds still haven’t sprouted and I’m getting a bit worried that they won’t come up at all. I still want to get another poppy plant or two. The Gartenmarkt at Neumarkt is one of my favorite things every year and I plan to take total advantage of the situation, aaand this year there’s a Reibekuchen stand which makes life just beautiful right now 🙂
I’ve already been able to cook a few things with my garden herbs, here’s the most recent:
Yellow cherry tomatoes with fresh hyssop and gold oregano
This seriously takes no time to make, and is perfect for after work when you’d rather be drinking a beer on the balcony than cooking!
Just slice yellow cherry tomatoes, put in a pan, add olive oil, the fresh herbs, salt and pepper and bake for 10 minutes. Take it out of the oven and put into a bowl. Then slice up some mozzarella (use the real stuff, not the stringy American kind…trust me!) and toss it in with the tomatos. Done! You can eat it with a big piece of baguette or ciabatta to make it more substantial.
This weekend I’m planning on making fresh herb bread, I can’t wait!
