These were the only red beets that I have harvested due to the family of bunnies that has decided to live in my yard this year! Hopefully they will not bother my fall crop of beets, but I am not too hopeful about that.
These are the first few purple carrots that I picked to use in a new recipe for spicy pickled carrots. Yummy!!
The first round of fargo yellow tomatoes getting ready to be oven-dried and below what was left of the fargos after being dried (I found my son swiping them handfuls at a time). In my opinion these are the best tomatoes to dry in the oven. It brings out an amazing sweetness and flavor that they do not possess when eaten ripe off the vine. I have dried and frozen them the last few years to have for salads in the winter but unfortunately enough don't make it into the freezer because we can't help but to eat them as soon as they get out of the oven. They are THAT YUMMY!!
These are only a few of my chiogga beets that I sliced really thin and baked in the oven for beet chips. I forgot how ugly these beets get when they are baked, but they tasted amazing with a dip made from yogurt and horseradish.
