We returned home to a summer garden abundant with goodness. I’ll be busy in the kitchen this weekend and we will be feasting on some of my favorite summer recipes. I’ve shared some links below to my tried and true hits that show-off summer’s bounty.

Finally grew some jalapeños that are HOT. Perhaps Roasted Salsa with Tomatillos?

These guys came out of nowhere. Perfect timing for my 4th standby, Raw Green Bean Salad.


Hundreds of mulberries, all clustered on one branch. Mulberry Cocktail (or mocktail) anyone?

Even if I’m not ready to host a 4th of July shindig, my flowers are good to go.

So jealous of your pomegranate tree! Have one here in SF but it’s just not that happy. Always inspired by your posts.

I stare at my tomatoes every day watching for a ripe one. All my plants got in a bit late since I started from seed. I’m getting some japalenos and relleno chiles. Will have to try your Raw Green Bean Salad when the beans are ready
Mulberries? I like that!
Your trip to upstate NY made me recall growing up on Long Island and traveling there. It’s so beautiful.
I’m enjoying the recent SB weather that hasn’t been too much June Gloom!

Good for you, starting from seed, Vickie! Hopefully this beautiful weather will get you some red tomatoes soon. Happy planting!
