Welcome to Romeo's Food Lady! This blog contains recipes for delicious vegetarian food. Most of these are not recipes authored by me. Rather, this is just a compilation of great veggie food I've found from all over the place, usually tweaked just a little. It's intended to be a reference FOR ME so I don't lose great food I've found nor the changes I've made to suit my tastes, but I'm happy for you to use it, too. After more than 25 years of being a vegetarian, I know what tastes good.
Romeo's Food Lady is named after my friend and cat, Romeo. Romeo is not a vegetarian, but his Food Lady is!

New Garden Bed

Scott and I built a new raised bed in the backyard this past weekend. It is going to be awesome! We built it from metal corners we purchased and some cedar boards. It's about 10 feet long and about 2 feet wide, and we're going to use it for salad vegetables and herbs. Since it is just outside the back door, it will be supremely convenient. Here's a photo:

After we built it, we lined the bottom with cardboard. We layered unfinished compost on top of the cardboard followed by a layer of leaves, then a layer of substandard dirt we got for free, then a layer of finished compost. We'll top it off with topsoil from a home center before planting.
We plan to grow lettuces, arugula, green onions, carrots, chives, parsley, thyme, oregano, cherry tomatoes, nasturtiums, and maybe some cilantro in this bed. I'm so excited!
