Zucchini is starting to come in.  So are the shallots and edamame.  I’ve been the only vendor with tomatoes at the Farmer’s Market for two weeks in a row now.  That will change soon.  Isn’t that cabbage gorgeous?  It doesn’t have a single blemish on it.  Our cabbage did NOT look like that last year!  I think it’s because it’s in the greenhouse.  We’ve started harvesting garlic, so much of it.  It’s a good problem to have!  I’m serving it in corn salsa, baked beans and roasted fingerling potatoes tonight.  I sailed right through two whole heads of it.  I love having an abundance.

    Lapoli posted a lemon (I think it was lemon…) garlic tea recipe on her blog that is supposed to help with head congestion and colds. :)

    I’m going to give garlic a try next year.

    Thanks T, I’ll check it out! Give garlic a try this year. Believe it or not, planting time is a mere four months away. Plant in October, harvest in June.

    Beautiful – and you’re right – I’ve never seen a more perfect cabbage! Can’t wait to see what those shallots might get thrown into! ;)

    Hmmmm, I wonder? ;-) Our cabbages last year were a bug eaten mess, a travesty, an insult to the cabbage fairies. This year not so much. We only have four of them and that’s about our annual cabbage consumption but dang! I wonder if one will keep until the county fair in September??

    Our garden is doing pretty well this year too. I suppose the fact that the deer are eating all the neighbours veggies has something to with it. I say “Feast away!” to the creatures so long as they stay away from our goodies :)
