ONCE YOU FIND A GOOD HABIT, STICK WITH IT. Last week’s Pesto Fest collaboration with the Dinner Tonight blog was so well-received by gardening and cooking friends that we’re throwing a series of events each Thursday through Labor Day.
This week: Cukes and Zukes, from tips for growing to how to take the bounty from garden (or farmer’s market!) to table.
Next week (Aug. 7): Beans (as in that Heftybag-ful of long green pods in my fridge).
Here’s how easy it is to participate (and what’s up in other weeks to come):
Aug. 14: The topic is Tomatoes.
Aug. 21: Corn.
The week leading up to Labor Day, Aug. 28: All harvest crops welcome…a veritable cornucopia of possibilities.
Here’s how it works (with thanks to Carol at May Dreams Gardens for inspiring the structure, modeled on her Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day the 15th of each month):
Readers: Stop by Thursday and tell us what’s cooking in your kitchen or what’s growing in your garden.
Bloggers: Do a new post (or dig out the url of an old one), then come to A Way to Garden or Dinner Tonight Thursday to comment and share the link back to your place.
Just don’t leave us any giant zucchinis, OK? Trust me, there are enough of those already here to go around.
