I realized that I had not posted any baby pictures, so I ran out to the greenhouse in the dark in order to get a shot of some babies.
I met this guy.  I think our baby veggies are safe from any marauding insects.
Spinach in the front, baby bok choy on the right, red romaine on the left, red russian kale back left.
Teenagers under the protective cloth outside. This will be our salad in two weeks.
dyno kale and chard just about ready to start producing.
patch O spaghetti and butternut just starting to produce.
Slice Fuyu and spread with lime juice, salt, and chili powder. Eat it with a slice of cheese or spread with peanut butter.
For an Autumn Salad, mix cubed Fuyu with grapes, pomegrante seeds, cubed apple, and pretty sliced green kiwi.
Top hot or cold cereal with little pieces of bright orange Fuyu.
Salsa is great when chopped Fuyu, onion, tomatillo, cilantro, and chili serrano are mixed together.
Smoothies can be blended using Fuyu, ice, lime juice, and milk. Sweeten if desired.
Syrup for hotcakes is delightful when peeled and chopped or blended Fuyu is cooked with butter and sugar.
Dehydrate thin slices of Fuyu to enjoy as a snack or to add to trail mix.
zucchini avocado pomegranate salsa with fresh oregano

2 zucchini, trimmed and cut into ½ inch dices
1 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh oregano
½ teaspoon each coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
¼ cup finely chopped red onion
1 avocado, halved, pitted, peeled, and cut into ¼ inch dice (about 1 cup)
½ cup pomegranate seeds
1 tablespoon crumbled feta cheese
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
Preheat oven to 425°. Toss zucchini with oil, oregano, salt, and pepper and arrange on a baking sheet.  Roast, tossing once, for about 25 minutes.  Once zucchini has cooled completely, add remaining ingredients and gently stir to combine.  Refrigerate 30 minutes before serving.  Serve with either pita chips, toasted pita, or tortilla chips. 

Here is a great breakfast!
