Produce from the potager

After a few very hot months paired unfortunately, with a serious drought, the gardens have finally begun to thrive.  And true to form the tomatoes always seem to come at once.  This year I experimented with a few heirloom varieties and they are a success!  Large and juicy.  I’m also growing scallions for the first time and they seem to be doing well.  Along with various herbs, beets, cherry tomatoes of mixed variety and peppers, the potager is producing nicely.

My grape vines have finally matured and this year I actually have a crop to do something with.  I experimented with a grape jelly a few weeks back and the results were so good, I’ve decided to make some more.  So the bowl-ful above will be jars of jelly in a few days.
