Summer garden harvest

Tonight I picked two eggplants and three heirloom tomatoes. These are the same tomatoes that I photographed and posted on Saturday. Four consecutive days of thunderstorms and the subsequent soggy ground has caused these tomatoes to split their skins in a few places. No worries though, I'm sure they still taste fine. I've already roasted the eggplants and mashed them with tahini, lemon, cumin and garlic. That along with a piece of H&F bread (from the Grant Park Farmers Market) will be tomorrow's lunch. 


  1. Ooh, have you ever done a post on pickling? I'd love to hear what you do!

  2. We don't pickle all that much. Last season we took the last of the grape tomatoes and pickled them. They are pretty potent but go great in omelets and as acidic adornment to a bloody mary.

    We've also pickled excess peppers and okra before but our garden is so small we usually don't have a lot of leftovers to preserve.
