What To Do With Your Garden Fresh Veggies

garden fresh veggies

Spinach Tomato Tortellini made with garden fresh vegetables is just one of the many delicious dishes you’ll get from growing your own food!

Growing garden fresh veggies is something I love to do, is a lot of fun and very rewarding.

Hopefully if you have a veggie garden you’ve decided what to with all that produce.  I like to eat some fresh of course, right out of the garden!

Nothing beats a warm sun ripened tomato for a delicious snack. Fresh green beans, fresh greens for a salad and on and on…..

Freezing much of what I grow is the other thing I like to do, save them for a cold winters day and add them to a stew or some other dish.

But you don’t have to wait until winter to put your vegetables to a good and tasty use! One thing I really like to do is make my favorite dishes with stuff fresh from my garden.

Of course you’ll need to buy a few things too, but you will see the dishes you make with fresh vegetables do taste better, and if there from your own garden, it is somehow more so.
