Gardening (Giardinaggio) has its rewards. Those rewards being tomatoes, peppers and zucchini flowers, all of which are present and accounted for in the garden today. I've got a few varieties of tomatoes. I love heritage varieties and the depth of flavour and colour they add to any dish.. and of course, the tomatoes for sauce are a given.
Most of the veggies have taken their time making an appearance this year. Seems that there were only anything but flowers for the longest while but now that summer is dwindling, these same plants are finally yielding their fruit. Their green couture is fading, in favour of shades of red, yellow and orange and they can be found making their fashionably late appearances in all the right places. Mostly in my salad bowl.
