Summer’s Bounty

July 16th, 2010

This time of the year is wonderful for eating fresh veggies from the garden. On Tuesday I went to my mom’s and we harvested a few of those Yukon Gold potatoes that we planted back in March. I harvested the rest of the peas, they’ll come out to make room for winter cabbages & broccoli. I also harvested some basil, a pepper, a head of broccoli and some Egyptian walking onions from my mom’s garden. I added all this bounty to the plate on my table where I keep all the harvests, which was only one cucumber and a few peaches I bought at the farmer’s market.

What a lovely sight it is after a long season of nothing fresh on the table! I think summer is my favorite fresh vegetable season, soon enough I’ll have some ripe tomatoes on my table! Hope this summer finds lots of fresh fruits and veggies in your kitchen!

What’s your favorite season for fresh fruits and vegetables?
