May your barbecues and remembrances avoid sogginess. We’ll probably be cooped up indoors. It’s been raining here almost every day for close to three weeks now, and we’re starting to get a little worried about the warm weather crops. Lettuce is doing well, though, and I managed to get in my pepper crop between raindrops!
I made a salad last night out of quick-grilled baby zucchini from the farmer’s market (local but grown in a greenhouse, so they don’t taste that great). It was simply dressed with lemon, olive oil, pine nuts and mint going wild in an unclaimed corner of my garden. The local beef burgers with my dill relish and ketchup weren’t bad either.
