Fried Rice with Green Garlic; the update

I finished spring cleaning the house…. Now I can start on my files.

I made this simple fried rice to go with the Miso Tuna I made a few weeks ago.

Anyone who has read this blog  for awhile knows I love green garlic.

For anyone new, who isn’t familiar with green garlic, allow me to explain.

Green garlic is immature garlic, picked before the bulbs are formed. It looks like a green onions and has a mild, sweet garlic flavor. It’s all usable, including the dark green top.

It’s only available for a few weeks in the spring.

Work continues….

The floor is almost finished, well, except for the varnishing, of course.

There is going to be a bench / window seat tucked into he little alcove in the corner.

The alcove is there so that we could have a window in this bedroom. On the other side of the wall is the guest bathroom…. without a window. In a house this old with walls this thick, one works with what is already there.


He also put a fence around my herb garden.

The hope is that it keeps the bunnies out. They don’t eat any of the herbs, but they do like to dig.


While I was tidying up after the work I saw two of the prettiest, big, bright green lizards we have around here. They’re very shy. I’ve only seen four or five in all the years we’ve lived here.

Apparently they like my herb garden – I saw them again today.

  1. Lovely garden. We have voles in our yard and they’ve managed to push almost all of the surface plants out of the ground and I have no idea what they’re doing to the roots of the deeper ones. I think I’d rather the bunnies, which we also have an abundance of.

    Definitely trying the fried rice! It looks yummy. I have several clumps of chives coming up so I might toss a few of those in as well, but I don’t have access to green garlic here so I’ll have to modify a bit.

  2. Katie – the room is sure to be lovely. We love green garlic aka garlic scapes. I always make homemade pesto with mine – so yummy!

  3. nightsmusic, voles…. that is so frustrating. I love the first chives of spring

    Ina, thanks on the room… But green garlic is different than garlic scapes. I can’t get scapes… They;re the flower stalk as opposed to the immature bulb. I hear they are wonderful, too
