Garden veggie haul, 5-23-12
Picked today, clockwise starting at top left: Assorted herbs (thyme, oregano, and rosemary), patio tomatoes as well as two yellow pear tomatoes underneath. To the right of that is one green bell pepper, and several golden "yummy" peppers beneath one Ichiban eggplant. Coming back around from right to left, are some Roma II bush beans, followed up by some basic bush green beans (I think maybe they're Blue Lake?) And then running in a circle around the beans are a bunch of Husky Cherry Red tomatoes.
A truly awesome little haul!
Some of the herbs, most of the tomatoes, and the big bell pepper are going into a batch of homemade spaghetti sauce, along with a couple beautiful big tomatoes I bought at the farmer's market. The rest of the cherry tomatoes are going into a batch of tabouli, and the Yummy peppers will go into a cucumber salad with some cucumbers from the market as well. The Roma beans I'll probably just blanch and lightly sautee' with a bit of butter and salt and pepper, and the thinner green beans are just enough to maybe make one jar of pickled dilled beans. The eggplant will get cut up and sauteed with some mushrooms to go along with the spaghetti sauce.
