Holy moly, tomatoes!
I cannot get over how pretty the green zebras are. I’m hoping to harvest enough of the principe borghese this week to roast with some olive oil like this. I only have one plant of each variety, in containers, so I’m not hoping for too much, despite how each plant has overgrown the container. Admittedly, I ate one of the green zebras before taking the pic, or there’d be more to see.
You might call me the one-foot gardener today instead of the barefoot gardener. After an injury, i’ve been having to elevate and rest my left foot, but I needed a little fresh air, so I limped outside briefly to see what was ripe.
My mole peppers are about ready to be harvested as well. They’re a type of pasilla pepper, bred for mole sauce. I was planning to follow the standard recipe that comes with the ‘Holy Mole’ seeds (and use Mexican chocolate instead of any old unsweetened chocolate), but am soliciting any favorite recipes of readers. Please, comment away!
Lastly, a quick self-serving plug. My blog has its own page on Facebook where the feed is syndicated. I occasionally post extra pictures and links over there to avoid the annoying formatting issues I have in WordPress. Hop on over and press the Like button: https://www.facebook.com/BarefootGardening
