In bloom

And now for a purely gratuitous photo of my squash blossoms. They’re gorgeous and verdant and settling in for the heat of July and August. The first yellow crookneck is almostreadyto pick!—and then I think summer vegetable fever will officially set in.

I’m sorry if there’s nothing around here for the next month or so but tomatoes and summer squash and shelling beans and cucumbers. Not really, though. Besides, we need to give that little tomato icon in the corner a reason to be here.

    Those blossoms are so lovely! I love summer squash and, not having a garden, have never stuffed/fried the blossoms. Have you tried that?

    Continuing to love your site!

    • Maggie! Yes, I love stuffed and fried squash blossoms. Lately I’ve just been eating them on salads without frying them though—they have such a wonderful, baby-squash taste that I don’t like covering it up. I’m so glad you chimed in; we really need to make it up to the city to visit.
