|Chianti Rose and Jaune Flamme tomates|
A few more peppers ripened but these are some of the last ones left on the plants, there are very few green ones on the plants. This lot included Shephard's Ramshorn, Lady Bell, Giallo di Cuneo, Topepo Rosso, Piment doux long des Landes, and Padrons.
Another harvest of ripe peppers included NTR, Sonora, Stocky Red Roaster, and a couple that I think are Tarahumara Chile Colorado.
Cucumbers are trickling in and I harvested the first Golden Sweet snow peas.
I let some Spanish Black carrots go to seed over the past year and got some volunteers from seeds that fell. These aren't sweet carrots, but I think they will be interesting in a savory dish such as a soup or stew.
Yay, I finally got a Watermelon radish to grow without bolting. That's a 1 pound Tromba squash next to it. I should have photographed the pretty appetizer that I made with it, I used a mandolin to make thin slices, topped those with a little mound of Honey Sheepmilk Yogurt Spread (from Garden Variety Cheese), then sprinkled the top with some Merkén made from my home smoked peppers. I turned out to be quite a tasty combination of flavors.
The Di Ciccio broccoli continues to produce lovely shoots.
And the cauliflower has suddenly sized up. The first one was the biggest of the lot.
It was promptly roasted a la Ruhlman. This is absolutely delicious and so simple.
Two more were ready to harvest at the same time. One of these was made into Smashed Cauliflower, the recipe for which I still haven't written up, but it's basically cauliflower florets slowly cooked with garlic confit (I finally wrote up that recipe), butter, and a bit of stock until it's falling apart tender, then smashed with some creme fraiche. I'll take smashed cauliflower over mashed potatoes any day!
The only other things harvested but not photographed were some cherry tomatoes.
