But take a look at them big boys! I should have measured them! They better be pretty delicious for my troubles! Tonight they are getting breaded and baked into Zucchini Chips, per Hef's dad's request.
The other night we grilled some of the zucchini with steaks. I was setting up Hef's cage while Hef's dad cooked dinner. I told him to brush the slices with oil and season with s&p. I came into the kitchen to see him dipping zucchini in a shallow bowl of oil. ACK! I was very worried they would be super oily, like eggplant, but they were delicious. Hef's dad also wanted me to show off our grill, so there it is.
If you were a follower last year you might remember this cute little strawberry vine. It was our very first plant for food! Of course it's all gone to bunnies so far! Well I had one or two but mostly bunnies! Last night Hef's dad moved it into the Offical Food Garden Spot. I'm worried! I don't want my strawberry to die!
Last night we also harvested our yyukon golds! I only had 4 seed potatoes from the little package I bought. I didn't do too bad but I don't think I am going to beat Rabbit's Guy! Darn it!
For some reason I always feel the need to plant my dill seeds in a pot. I just spread them all over the whole pot and cover with good soil and let it go. Two years in a row I end up with this big bushy dill pot.
On recommendation of The Raspberry Rabbits, Shell, we made Deviled Eggs with Dill. It was a lazy sunday afternoon when I made these and my eggs were a hare away from being great, so a little sloppy. I just mashed the yolks up with mayo and dill to taste and glopped it in. This is a try again when I get a piping bag recipe! Definetly!
Here's one of our arugulas, we have 8, we lost one early on. I thought to a rabbit, Hef's dad just thinks it wilted away.
And finally! The row of herbs! Basil on top, Mint in the middle, and Sage in front! I have plans for Mint Tea and Mojitos, Lemon Basil Porkchops, and Sage chicken!
