The intentionally planted parts of our garden have really taken off lately too. We have been picking snow peas, zucchini, crook-neck squash, eggplant, tomatoes, onions, and beets. Yum!
I love tomatillos. They look like miniature paper lanterns. I don't know much about them except they are used to make salsa verde.
Okay, true confession time. I don't think I have ever eaten eggplant. Are they good? How do you cook them? Their flowers and fruit are gorgeous, I just don't have a clue what to do with them. For now, Joel is selling them to his coworkers.
We have a few broccoli plants that made it. Note the happy weeds in the background.
This is not the best picture but it's the best my old camera can do! We steamed some Swiss chard and lightly stir fried zucchini, garlic, basil and onions tossed with fresh tomatoes and topped with mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. Oooh baby!
