My First Harvest In 2021 | Greens From Daddy’s Patio| (S.2 Ep.3)

Three little cherry tomatoes from LadyG’s Garden

Yesterday, when I went to tend to my garden, Daddy shared a surprise with me.

It seems that his eyes espied something new lurking on one of my plants.

What was it? You ask.

Well, there–at the base of my cherry tomato plant–sat four or five ripe red cherry tomatoes!

Never mind the low yield!

WE HAD SOMETHING TO HARVEST!

Check out the video below for more about my first “harvest” for 2021, and an update on what’s growing in the garden and how things are progressing.

Happy 2021 From My Southern Kitchen!

Watch how I spent most of the time in my Southern kitchen on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. On New Year’s Eve, I prepared shrimp cocktail with a herbed dip, deviled eggs, egg salad sandwiches, and my daughter made some “gourmet style” brownies. My son prepared a huge “philly style” cheese steak and my Dad shucked a couple of oysters for us to enjoy on the half shell.

On New Year’s Day, you already know I got my greens for the money and my black-eyed peas for the luck! I added in some pigtails and flap jacks to make it sho ’nuff Southern! LOL! Enjoy!

What You Must Do Before New Year’s Day…According to Mama

This video, based on one of my original posts here on Seek The Best Blog, details all of the things that my mother required us to do BEFORE New Year’s Day!

My mother was very supersitious and like many of the folks who were born and raised in the South, the idea of the unknown that accompanies a new year is bound to birth any number of superstitions and “old wives tales” that were used as guidance FOR “good luck” and AGAINST “bad luck.”

Don’t get me wrong, they prayed to God, but they hedged their bets! LOL!!!

I hope that you enjoy the video and you can link to the original post HERE!
