Eating the Garden

Posted on

The garden is lavishly producing zucchini now, and I’ve also gotten cucumbers, tomatoes, and carrots.  The carrots were packed way too tightly together so I decided I needed to think them. To my surprise I actually got quite a few that were a nice enough size to eat. Look! Real carrots! (These are my first successful carrots, so I’m pretty excited.) Here’s a victorious handful:

Here’s a garden grub dinner: carrots, zucchini fritters, and cucumber salad.

I’ve been tossing the zucchini in almost everything. Here I sliced it and put it on some focaccia for a delicious special summer lunch.

I love summer cooking!
