DON'T HAVE TO BE A NEW YORKER TO GROW VEGGIES IN CONTAINERS.

Thinking about having a fresh salad with poppy seed dressing, roasted pecans and fresh strawberries for lunch? Check your containers before running to the store.


It is so nice and rewarding to run outside and hand pick a few fruits and veggies to make or complement your meals. Fruits & veggies taste better when you grow your own!
Sauteed Onion & fresh tomatoes Omelet

Grown in a container!

 Ingredients:
  • 2 fresh eggs
  • 1/2 medium onion 
  • a dash of salt & pepper to taste
  • shredded cheese (Mozzarella, Cheddar)
  • 1/2 cup fresh chopped tomato













Whip eggs together with one tablespoon of water and combine with salt and pepper. Slice onions into thin slices and cook in pan over a medium-high heat. Sautee onions in the oil until they begin to turn brown (a pinch of sugar helps the caramelization process) . Remove from pan leaving oil in pan to cook eggs. Pour egg mixture into pan while it is still hot. Reduce to low heat. Place cooked onions on top of the egg mixture as an even layer.
Add the cheese and chopped tomatoes evenly across the top of the onions. As egg firms, turn one half of egg over the other leaving the onion and cheese mixture between the folds of the egg. Continue cooking, flipping to other side to brown it.  The egg will have a  golden brown crust on both sides. Remove from pan and serve.
Garnish with chopped tomatoes and parsley.
