I really don’t mean to complain, but I cannot get out of the kitchen! Look what comes in from the potager…
Heirloom tomatoes… and blueberries too. My husband is an organic gardener and his domain is the potager. There he grows heirloom vegetables. The resulting harvest is extraordinary, some of the best tasting vegetables, are deposited on the kitchen counter daily the one caveat…I have to DO something with all this bounty.
My clematis need weeding, but I will be cooking tomatoes … The viburnums need some pruning, but the blueberries need to be picked…It is time to topdress the hydrangeas… but look at all this squash… and so the summer unfolds… one delightful flavour after another.
Those fingerling potatoes need to be roasted with olive oil, garlic, salt & pepper, as the vegetables below.
And for dessert…
Blueberry Clafoutis. I followed this recipe from Chocolate & Zucchini. Just used the fruit I had on hand. Clafoutis embraces any fruit beautifully.

You are making me hungry! This all looks so delicious.
You are making me so hungry! This all looks amazing!!!
What a wonderful bounteous harvest! Tiring but the rewards are worth it!
Looks absolutely delicious!!!
Looks like a good year for tomatoes. I found last year they didn’t start producing to the end of the summer (for me) and the harvest was skimpy.
When are you going to tell everyone how FAMOUS organic-vegetable-gardening-Earl is?
And how you propelled him into his fame.
Your pics should be illegal.
Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
WOW….. everything has an upside and a downside. You better be taking your vitamins and getting lots of sleep in order to tackle such a large undertaking. I’m sure it’s all worth it in the end. Enjoy.
The vegetables/fruit look fantastic, the kitchen looks great and the photography is superb. What more could you ask of summer.
Wow, Sandra — and YUM!
I’ll have to scheme up a reason to be in your neighborhood around dinner time sometime soon 😉
I picked my first tomato Saturday after the market.
I’ve had the pleasure of sampling all of the above right out of Earle’s garden. And I can vouch for Sandra’s Blueberry Clafoutis – simply divine!
In the winter, you’ll run across these photos, and smile at the memory of the delicious garden bounty.
Or maybe I will, when I’m stuck inside, dreaming of springtime.
Wow, that is so wonderful! I can’t wait to get started.. Yum!
