Blossoms

On Saturday of this weekend, we got a great deal of rain. On Sunday morning, I awoke to these new blossoms in the garden. Above, mountain bluet.

Datura.

Oriental lily.

Zucchini.

Strawberry.


Dill.


Bean.

Pepper.




Tomatillo.

Arugula.



Borage.


Daylily.


Gerbera daisy.

Hanging fuchsia.


Painted tongue.

On a quiet Sunday morning, with everyone in the house and most of the neighborhood still asleep, the garden had its own celebration.

A perfect meal


Last Saturday, T. and I sat down to a perfect meal. Here are the ingredients:
  • lemon parsley mafaldine from Artistic Eats NY, available at the Rochester Public Market, mixed with lemon juice, my own fresh parsley, capers, and extra virgin olive oil and just a bit of grated Pantaleo cheese (like Pecorino, but with sheep's milk) from V.M. Giordano's at the Market;
  • grilled ricotta salata, also from Giordano's, drizzled with agave nectar (you could also use honey);
  • all on a bed of fresh salad greens from my garden;
  • also, fresh strawberries from my garden;
  • a shared bottle of Chimay ale.
Fantastic! Seriously, I should open a restaurant. Except then I'd have no time for gardening!


I also brought in a bundle of oregano and mint to dry, and the last batch of pac choi for now, ready to bolt with our early warm weather.

I love gardening season!
