Gardens– beautiful, peaceful, productive. The amount of life and produce that springs from even a small patch of dirt is baffling at times.
The bit of sweat and effort needed to initiate a garden pales in comparison to the rewards of watching vegetables, herbs and fruit come to life.
The crunchy bite of a cucumber fresh off the vine, the burst of tomato sweetness and the continual fragrance of basil are the height of summer perfection.
Whether the produce you cook with this summer comes from a backyard garden, farmers market or grocery store, eat with the season. Let this pleasant little menu help with summer-time garden recipes.
P.S. Looking for the enjoyment of a garden minus all the manual labor? Check out these garden kits available at United Market Street (click here for website). Pick up a tomato, cilantro and jalapeno organic grow kit– add a little water and watch your salsa garden grow.
