Fresh veggies on the supper table do add a whole new dimension flavour-wise. Is there anything better than marble sized potatoes slathered in butter?
I wish I had planted more peas, as there are just enough to tease. I did plant another package last week and they are all up nicely - now to see if we have enough time to get a fall crop in. I figured the price of a package of seed is a pretty good gamble for a few meals of peas in October.
The tomatoes are getting some fine green fruit on them, but I didn't get them in early enough to have ripened love apples yet. Can't wait for those big Brandywines and Beefsteaks, cut into 1/2 inch slices, on rye bread, with mayo, peanut butter and lots of fresh cracked pepper.
|Gold Bar Zucchini, great in stir fries|
|Tomatillo - first time growing them, apparently ideal for salsa|
|Lincoln Homesteader peas|
|Green and waxed beans|
|Red Chieftan gems|
And that is about all I have to say for today.
