Change of seasons on the menu

Summer crops

I like to have at least two dependable vegetables on the menu so we don't get bored eating the same one over and over. As a result (and despite what I said in my recent blog post), I've waited to pull out our broccoli, letting it put out the first round of side shoots instead.

The pea vines, on the other hand, hit the compost pile yesterday and the last bed of lettuce is really too bitter for the gourmet palate. Good thing we're already nibbling on carrots and will be enjoying green beans and cucumbers by this time next week. The summer dining season is nearly upon us!
