Brad took this picture in Kumrovec, Croatia, late September, 2014.  Locals in the Balkan countries tend to have well-developed gardens, with produce on unattended carts on the streets.  Cabbages were common.  



The following was sent by Ray and Josephine Cowdery of Rapid City: "as a gardner you will probably enjoy this photo, taken at the Tower Hill Botanical Garden in Boylston MA".

Drowning In Tomatoes? Try Something Different This Year.

 

If you’re a home gardener about to drowned in tomatoes rolling in off the vines and demanding to be consumed before they go bad, hang on. Here comes a life preserver.


I chop up a small bowlful of fresh very ripe tomatoes, add chopped red onion or scallions, minced garlic, chopped fresh basil, and extra-virgin olive oil.  I sometimes add Kalamata olives. I make this dish in the morning and let it set on the kitchen table all day. By evening meal time, the flavors have melded nicely, and I serve it over hot cooked spaghetti noodles and top it with fresh grated parmesan for an easy meal on a hot summer day.
