This Summer's Harvest

Back in June we picked up a bunch of vegetable plants for the garden from Home Depot.

In the past I've gone whole hog and raised heirloom varieties from seeds, but time was of the essence this year. Planting season snuck up on us before a Seeds of Change catalog did. We managed a lot of tomatoes that palpably paled in comparison to the many splendors of Wild Boar tomatoes.

Our peppers were first rate though. We had sweet and spicy varieties and the quantity and quality were better than we could have expected. I hope to experiment with drying techniques this week, any sage advice would be appreciated.

Just for the heck of it: Teas' Tea

If you are reading this blog and have given birth at Alta Bates Medical Center in Berkeley, chances are your friends or loved ones brought you goods from the Whole Foods down the street. I have a weakness for the Tea's Tea packaging and, even though Honest Tea was on sale, I grabbed a couple of bottles of Teas' at Whole Foods prices.
