August Harvests

August brings a rainbow of foods to harvest from the veggie patch. Cucumbers are coming in abundance. I grow salad varieties perfect for eating fresh. Many will still find their way into home made pickles as they produce faster than I can keep up!
This year, I have planted two varieties of summer squash: Early straight-neck yellow and one called “Gold Rush” which I have not tried before. They are both delicious grilled, chopped and added to pasta sauces or baked into ratatouille – a favorite late summer casserole. The eggplants go into ratatouille also. Alternatively, they can be basted with olive oil and broiled, or baked into eggplant parmesan and moussaka.
