This morning we used up the extra shredded zucchini we had after making zucchini bread and made Zucchini Latkes!
Finally harvested some plums! And so it is time to make Zwetschgendatschi, a plum cake / tort I very much enjoy from my German heritage. It’s basically a sweet, sugary/ buttery, pizza dough with plums sprinkled in sugar on top =)
This one is gluten free, and improved on the one from two years ago.
It still could be juicier, and it still needs whipped cream…
It was great to have help clearing out the mint.
The Arugula seems to have recovered it’s transplanting as the rains passed over. and it has been joined by many little radish sprouts!
This evening a little forage in the garden for dinner. The beets were smaller than expected, the broccoli past its prime, and the last carrots from the first crop planted had grown huge!
Yet yummy all chopped up and stir fry steamed with some ginger and lemon.
Simple and good, on a bed of wild rice.
The year continues on, and the garden continues to produce a bounty of wonderful vegetables. Yet now feels a good time to post a survey of some of the wonderful vegetables we have grown in the garden, and harvested in portland; and tell of the sauces canned and the pies baked.
Here’s to more to come,
And some tasty radishes too! I’ll post those soon.
