We harvested our first heirloom tomatoes this week at the MCG!
Big Rainbow & Black Krim.
I liked both varieties very much, however, I like a more acidic tomato, so I will wait to review the other 8 varieties we are growing, before I pick a winner.
We have a nice crop of big red onions and GARLIC!
Each week the MCG brings us a bounty (except our potatoes are not lookin' too good).
We also have haricot verts.
Both a beautiful purple and green.
Silly me, I did not realize when you cook the pretty purple beans, they turn green just like the other variety! boo hoo.
I guess I will just eat them raw.
Here, is a lovely lunch from our garden, along with some Calabrian Ventresca tuna, soft boiled eggs and olives.
No, I don't have chickens, so the eggs are from the store, as are the olives.
I sprinkled just some sea salt & pepper over everything and a drizzle of good olive oil.
I love summer.
