Weekly Photo Challenge:Â Treat
Why to buy dried herbs when I can grow fresh herbs in my garden to enhance the taste of my platter. Nothing to beat the aroma of a freshly chopped mint or coriander. My small kitchen garden in my backyard provides me everything which is necessary to make food tasty, I spent time indulging myself in aromatic feasts.
How ? Look at the pictures and you will get an idea !
First on the list is corn on the cob which I am sure my blogger friends Marilyn & Garry gonna like it. It’s their favorite. They are milky and taste like heaven ! You can have it boiled, roasted or in any other form. I enjoy it with a pinch of salt rubbed on it with half sliced lemon.
When my garden gives me lemon, I SQUEEZE IT HARD TO MAKE LEMONADE ! Â Have you ever used curry leaves in south Indian dishes? Try it in upma, poha and sambar. In fact curry leaves can be used in any vegetable for that matter. The aroma will make you fall in love with south Indian food.
How about some mint, stevia and coriander ! O, yes ! I have fresh lemon grass to spice up my herbal tea and thai platter.
Wait a minute. If you think that I only grow herbs then you may be wrong. There are plenty of veggies too in my farm, like…..
What do you think? Wanna join me for anÂ organic meal ? I bet you won’t regret !

Your herb selections are a little different to ours, but I too have a garden full and use them in my dishes: sage, thyme, rosemary and marjory. I planted corn but the next morning there were holes in the ground where the mice had fed themselves. Eventually I had success, but it took a while. Your custard apples resemble our artichokes, which are a thistle vegetable.
I would love to see the pictures of your herbs and especially artichokes some day. Corn is easy to grow here but saving it from squirrels is a BIG challenge.They love it ! I have thyme too but didn’t had the picture.
Mrs. AS, in other places, custard apples are called soursop, I think.
This post was such a healthy and great informative post, Rashmi. I like spinach, fresh herbs, celery, kale and asparagus. Your choices look and sound delicious! 🙂 Have a lovely day and week! â™¡
Thank you Robin. I am glad that you liked the post and found it informative. Wish you the same 🙂
ooo!! If i bring treats can I join for some of this yummy organic meals you are describing? 🙂
Yes why not? Be my guest, would love to host you.
Hooray! 🙂 🙂
Nice garden full of tasty treats!
Thanks. I try to grow what best we can. Thankfully I have a ground floor with a big backyard.
I am so envious of those with a green thumb! And fresh herbs are my idea of heaven!! A lovely treat.
Is it? Thank you. I am happy to know your idea of treat. Herbs can convert any bland meal into a temptic one.
I truly envy your long growing season. You can grow just about anything all year round.
That’s the bonus I believe. We have two major crop seasons that is ‘Rabi’and ‘Kharif’ and in between the third crop ‘zaid’ exists. There is a problem of pests though in this area. One has to be vigilant all the time.
Gorgeous garden. What a joy to “pick” our own herbs and vegetables. I love growing my own cilantro but find I don’t keep it picked back and it constantly goes to seed. You look like you have a much greener thumb with foodstuffs than I do. I do better with non-edibles. http://judydykstrabrown.com/2015/11/01/sealed-and-sequestered/
This is the season for cilantro here. It will be cold after a month or two till then we will have abundant supply of herbs. I love your flowers and decorative plants and bushes.
Reshmi, it looks like you have a lot of farm land- to be able to grow corn . Really admire your wonderful efforts- you have a full time job too, don’t you ?
Yes, I am TGT Social science teacher and comes back from school by noon. Of course it is not possible without the help and thankfully I ‘m fortunate to have nice men around.
Ok – get that but you are certainly hard working.
These garden pictures were a treat!
Thanks for the visit, You are welcome again.
