Fresh carrots

June 13, 2011

I pulled these carrots from my garden this evening. I slow-roasted them in the oven with a honey-citrus glaze. They were delicious. It’s good growing your own veges. Each time I harvest something it makes me want to expand my “patch” which consists of the raised beds on my back deck along with a dozen or so tubs,¬†mainly fish bins, which are proving to be ideal. They’re much cheaper than “garden specific” plastic tubs and are also more resistant to UV damage.

Tempura!

This was our first attempt at tempura vegetables (actually tempura in general too) but I think we’ve nailed it. The yellow courgette is fresh from our vege garden and yes, it tasted as good as it looks.
