Spring is here, and markets and gardens will soon be filled with fruit, vegetables and herbs in hues of red, orange, purple, green and yellow. I am excited for the growth to begin this spring, especially what’s to come in my little container garden. This year I’m trying to grow a few new veggies this spring/summer including tomatillos, thai round purple eggplant and Tom Thumb peas all from Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Co, a pretty awesome non-GMO seed company in Missouri.
Speaking of foods you can grow in the garden… I love fruit, especially blueberries and strawberries. I recently baked a “galette”, a French term for a dessert with a freeform crust. This strawberry galette has a little bit of added sugar, but mostly the strawberries’ natural sweetness shine in this dessert. The best part about a galette is that they are pretty easy to make.
