Garden 2008: Smallest Harvest Ever and lunch

These have got to be the smallest ripe strawberries in the history of gardening. Mom and I each had three, which gave us a "taste of strawberry" sensation. Probably the equivalent of a normal size small berry. Oh well, I guess this is what happens when you use a strawberry pot. Maybe next year I'll actually plant them in the ground.

On a better note, this was our lunch today. A mostly organic, mostly local meal.

Here's the rundown:

Tomatoes: grape and pear; organic, from the garden.

Chard: red, hot pink, orange, green, white; organic, from the garden

Chicken: organic, Texas raised from Central Market

Bacon: organic, Texas raised, also from Central Market

Romain lettuce: Origin a mystery, from Belknap (Sayer's) Farmer's Market

Celery: Origin a mystery, also from Belknap (Sayer's) Farmer's Market

The whole thing was especially good because the tomatoes and chard were picked yesterday!
