Nothing says summer solstice like fertile and bulging poppy pods. Pretty soon, these pods will harden and turn brown. At the top, just under the skirt, holes will open up like windows to a spaceship. Then, during the first of the heavy onshore winds of summer, the pods will dance and sway as their axis begins to tilt enough for hundreds of seeds to begin spewing forth upon the garden floor.
And that pretty much sums up summer for you in a nutshell. Or should I say, “in a poppy pod”?
Here is what we are eating!!
Carrots are finally here!
This weeks list is short, but the portions seem big. The bags were on the heavy side.
We don’t grow scallions. We grow the seeds used for full sized onions. We harvest them early while the bulb is small and the greens are sweet. There are green, bunching onion seeds out there. We don’t think the flavor of those match the sweetness and complexity of the early harvested full sized onions.
The pickle cukes can be eaten raw guys. They have a full cucumber flavor. We have more exciting cucumbers on the way.
Have a great week.
