Radish Stew

A Central Texas Gardening Journal

Thursday, June 18, 2009

These pictures show the harvest from 6/16. I made Sweet Pickle Relish with the cucumbers and most of the Hungarian Wax Peppers, with the addition of a purchased Red Bell Pepper. The yield was 12 half-pints. The basil, which was pulled from around the peppers and eggplants, was picked and placed in paper bags to dry. Today. I made Bolognese Sauce with the 4th of July tomatoes, basil, oregano, parsley (frozen), and garlic (dry) from the garden. I processed the tomatoes into puree with the Kitchen Aid vegetable strainer attachment. The yield from 70 4th of July tomatoes (about 3 oz each) was 12 cups of puree.

The transition to summer garden continues. The last dozen cucumbers were harvested yesterday. There are 6 empty rows today where the yellow beans, Italian beans, zucchini, and cucumbers were. These rows will be turned with compost, fertilizer, and greensand added.
