OMG, the veggie harvest is totes ridix.

But seriously, the harvest is totally ridiculous right now. I went out to the garden and came home with three heavy sacks of vegetables. Tonight my friends and I are going to cook a lot of different little tapas-style dishes to dispatch the copious veggies pouring out of the garden plot.
Onions and carrots and beets, oh my! So many root vegetables.
Cippolini onions, after a good scrub.
The chard and basil harvest was overwhelming. I preserved the extra chard by blanching and the basil by pesto-ing. All of it went into the freezer.
Cherry tomatoes, Mexican Sour Gherkins, banana peppers, jalapenos, and an errant baby eggplant and bell pepper. Spicy ratatouille anyone?
Unwashed fingerling potatoes. After a good scrub, they'll look great.
The stubby Nantes carrots, post-scrub.
