Austin Urban Gardens

Raised Bed Gardening and Eating Well in Austin, Texas

No Grocery Store, Day 95 April 7, 2010

The strawberries are coming on strong!  I had more for breakfast, with Texas Coffee Trader’s Coffee and Way Back When milk.  I wanted to see what Eastside Cafe had going on in their amazing gardens, and took mom there for lunch.  I just had the special of the day salad, with garden greens, beets, and shrimp.  I wish I liked beets more, because they are so easy to grow.  Their gardens were amazing, as always.  I was surprised at the quantity of lettuce they still have growing, as its been a bit hot.  One special on the menu was stuffed chard, which they also still had growing.  If you haven’t seen their gardens, you should go, and they have chickens now, too.

Dinner was easy, leftover Thunderheart bison, more salad, and leftover pasta with Elevated Artisinal’s jalapeno ricotta.  Very tasty, indeed.
