The Vegetables of my Labor
Posted by Ghenghis Khan
You may recall when I blogged about tending to the vegetable garden. Well, let me tell you that all of my hard work has definitely paid off. The vegetables are great this season and Martha is so, so happy with all of my efforts.
1 Welcome to the vegetable garden, where I have worked so hard!
2 This red leaf lettuce is called Merlot Batavian. It's spectacular in a tossed salad.
3 All of Martha's tomatoes look great this year, including this wrinkly heirloom variety from Seed Savers Exchange. http://www.seedsavers.org/Items.aspx?search=tomato&image2.x=0&image2.y=0
4 This pretty cabbage is called Super Red. It still needs more time to mature into a nice round head.
5 We've also planted a couple of rows of decorative Indian corn. - Wades Giant
6 It smells kind of grassy and fresh.
7 Maybe I'll just munch on it a bit.
8 This Peter Pan summer squash has beautiful squash blossoms. Maybe I should pick some and stuff them with herbed goat cheese for Martha. She would like that.
9 Ahh! Sweet Biscayne peppers! Some peppers....some Italian sausage....what could be better?
10 Look at this Winterbor kale. You know, kale is a very under-rated vegetable. Sauteed, it is delicious and it's full of vitamins A and C, folic acid, calcium, and iron. Eating it should be a no-brainer!
