2011 garden, Aug. 9 harvest

Note the green-and-purple theme of the eggplant, okra, pepper, and even the cherry tomatoes (a variety called "Black Cherry"). I do have some veggies that are neither green nor purple, including tomatoes in white and peach and some "Bright Lights" Swiss chard in white, yellow, orange, and red - but those are all taking their sweet time to ripen.

If the weather cooperates tomorrow (and if I don't get distracted) I may try to get some pics of my poor overgrown yard and neglected house, just to counteract the "aren't they pretty?" veggie pics.

I thought the tomatoes were grapes. Enjoy all your pretty veggies! Are you going to post recipes, and pics of the dishes?

I didn't think of that - I've already eaten most of them! Recipes were pretty simple; I put the tomatoes in a bowl next to my chair and snacked on them, and for the rest, I sauteed some garlic and the minced jalapeno, then I chopped up the eggplant, okra, and some mostly-green tomatoes (that I had to pick because they were starting to develop blossom-end rot and wouldn't keep), nuked those until tender, and tossed them into the saute pan with the garlic and pepper to reduce the liquid. Very tasty, with a hint of a burn from the pepper. [It wouldn't have made that pretty a picture; sadly, all those lovely purple veggies tend to fade badly during cooking!]
