It feels like I’ve been doing a lot of complaining lately, about time constraints and failed experiments…There are lots of really GOOD things happening in this year’s garden, too.
Tomatoes? We got ’em! The orange ones are the Sun Golds. I will never go another year without this variety – they’ve been pumping out fruit since late-July, and are showing no sign of slowing down. The red ones are a smaller paste-type that was also early and productive and, most important, tasty!
Big tomatoes? Got those too! Cour di Bue is the name, and they’re amazing. And big. Did I mention big?
No time for making big pickles, but a jar of French cornichons has almost no time-commitment. Just wait for a day when there are plenty of teeny, tiny cucumbers, and make a single jar!
No recipe yet – we’re still waiting for the Magic to happen so we can taste them. If they’re good, I’ll share.
The recipe, not the pickles. There’s only one little jar, after all!
And this year’s successful experiment – the watermelons! It’s a small, short-season melon, and I’ve just picked the first ripe one today…
