The in-betweens

The veg garden is being very productive, but this preceding week was one of “the waits.” Yes, I am still pulling lots out of it; we are at the precipice of Bean and Tomato Season, not to mention squash/pepper/eggplants, and starting this week we’ll have quite the bounty. The usual large-bowl tender-leaf salads, however, will have to wait until the end of August. All the lettuces and arugula, mache, spinach, tatsoi and mizuna have gone to seed and/or been pulled up and composted. I have planted some hot-weather salad substitutes: amaranth, Malabar spinach, and chard. They are lovely. Midsummer means tougher leaves in your salads; I suppose we should just adapt.

  1. Oh, how I miss the good ole salad days. I bought some pole beans to eat at Mark’s because I so enjoyed yours.
