Speaking of harvest

I guess harvesting a few dozen radishes and a couple handfuls of a variety of lettuce has got my head spinning and now I'm constantly dreaming of the delicious bounty my garden will produce. All this humidity and rain has made everything go coo coo, and everyone at my community garden has images crispy cucumbers and tasty tomatoes dancing in their heads. Of course, one of my greatest joys is cooking with the produce I've grown so lovingly from seed. And if the past is any indication, my kitchen counters will be overflowing with tomatoes, basil, eggplants, peppers and cucumbers within the next few months (fingers are crossed!). I was recently sent two cookbooks that I feel I must mention to you. Jeff Crump and Bettina Schormann's Earth to Table and Janel Fletcher's Eating Local are two incredibly inspiring books that will leave you with no shortage of ideas about what to do with your yummy veggies. I've already made the New Potato Salad with Green Beans and Shallots from Earth to Table, and it was a hit. And, of course, Canadian Living's new special issue Grow It, Eat It is a great source of recipes based on seasonal produce you've grown yourself.
