Thursday Photos: Late Summer Harvests
August 6, 2009 by Amelia
I’ll be up in New Jersey this weekend, bridesmaiding it up in the wedding I mentioned earlier this week. I won’t be posting until Monday, so Sunday Photos is coming early.
Right now is the time of year when the harvest gets out of control. I pull up some potatoes and beets here, pick some tomatoes and chard there, and suddenly I have piles of produce. Here’s what’s coming out of my garden these days:
Carrots and beets - the makings of those sweet pickles I wrote about yesterday!
Cherry tomatoes, Mexican Sour Gherkins, and peppers
Endless amounts of Swiss Chard.
People doubted the chard burrito - here it is! Delicious.
Shallots and fingerling potatoes (of the variety La Ratte).
Fingerling potatoes and specialty onions get turned into fancy hash browns with parmesan.
