A little green for St. Patrick’s Day…

March 17, 2011

Don’t let my Scottish last name fool you, this lass is Irish.  I have been a McClendon for a decade now, but I am honoring my lineage with a second post today in celebration of all things green around here.

Just look at all of that beautiful green garlic above.  If you haven’t cooked with it, you don’t know what you are missing.  They are milder than regular garlic and can be slightly sweet when cooked.

These are baby eggplant that just went in the ground.  They don’t look like much yet, but they soon be two-feet tall with eggplant hidden within the leaves.  Can’t wait – I have missed eggplant.  I am not yet ready to say good-bye to some of my favorites from this season, but knowing that eggplant is coming back will ease me into summer.

Summer squash will help too.  This is some of the zucchini that just went in the very back of the back field.

Radishes also just went into the back field.

And peppers in the front garden.  These are shishito peppers.  (FYI – all you need to enjoy these is pan roast them for a little bit with the kosher salt.  Mmmm!)

Sean and Bob have also been very excited about the new seeder on the back of the tractor.  It was used for the first time last week to plant rows of arugula in the back field.

It is amazing that in the course of a week it can go from this (above) to this (below).

Yup… the McClendons may be Scots, but it is all green around here!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
