Every year, my dad and I plant various vegetables and fine herbs: tomatoes, celery, zucchini, eggplant, swiss chard, yellow and red onions, garlic, basil, thyme, parsley and more. Once everything has been planted, it is my responsibility to care of the beautiful potager. I truly enjoy gardening and I would even more if it weren't for the following : I am not particularly fond of bugs and the act of removing weeds. My neighbours know when I am in the garden because they hear a screeching voice every time I come across a bug or two (or more). In addition, I only have time to remove the unwanted weeds once every two weeks. Now you might ask "Why have a garden then?" Because my imperfect little garden, no matter what it looks like, still yields beautiful vegetables that I am proud of.
What will I be cooking for the next few days? Well, I must use the fresh produce therefore I will be cooking roasted eggplant tomato sauce with couscous, swiss chard with black eye peas and one of my favourite meals "Gemista".
