A Bird's Eye view of the harvest - sack full of lettuce on lower right corner
Potatoes - I did not plant these this year, these are all volunteers from years past
Dill - the dill is ready but the cukes are not. I going to try and freeze these for pickling later in the month
The last of the favas - I've frozen them all in order to use them next week when friends come over. I want to make a fava puree to serve with pita
These are leeks - not looking like the ones in the store but very tasty nonetheless
A recipe to leave you with. Inspired by my friend Chris who is a much more imaginative cook than me
Pasta with leeks, mushrooms and peas
I chopped up 3 leeks and sauteed them in some bacon fat. Added a pint (one of the those small plastic containers of mushrooms) of sliced crimini mushrooms - covered and cooked until mushrooms are soft. In the meantime, get water boiling for pasta - add desired shape (I used gemelli) - After leeks and mushrooms have cooked, add a couple of handfuls of frozen peas and then ladle in a couple of scoops of pasta water into the veggies. Cook for a few minutes, pour over some heavy cream and season with salt and pepper. Add drained pasta to the veggie mix and combine.
