No store meal here.

I have had a garden for the past three years . Each year it gets bigger and bigger. This year I planted a lot of different vegetables. I also added a herb garden. So I decided to see if I could make a meal totally from my garden, with meat that my husband had hunted. I didn't want anything in the meal that was from a store. Soup sounded like the best choice.
This is all from my garden. Well except the moose meat,  compliments of my husband.
These are the herbs from my garden. This was the first time I added rosemary to veggie soup. It ended up giving it a really good favor. It really felt good knowing I could make a meal from thing I grew. I hope to one day to only have to get minimal things from the store.  There is a great pride in making your own food.

PS Yes as you can see from the picture I forgot to add the potatoes. Oh well, There is always another meal to be made.


  1. Very nice! I just blogged about using collard leaves from the garden as wraps for sandwich wraps. Here Tennessee we can harvest fresh collards from the garden pretty much throughout the winter, although I see next week we are supposed to drop into the teens so I may have to make sure to cover them.

  2. You go girl!! It is such a nice feeling, huh?!? Your soup looks wonderful! :)

  3. Michelle I am so impressed! You are something else and that looks great!

  5. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I
    find this topic to be actually something that I think I
    would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.
    I'm looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the
    hang of it!
