Happy Summer!

Basket of veg 6:21Here’s what I harvested from the kitchen garden on the first day of summer: Snow Crown cauliflower, Purplette onions, Kestrel and Touchstone Beets and Oasis turnips.  The rounded cauliflower surrounded by the red, yellow, white and purple globes looked like a vegetable solar system.  I couldn’t resist asking for a photo before cooking them all.  Then we celebrated the Solstice with a feast of roasted vegetables.  Happy summer!
