Friday PhotoEssay

Okay, this week’s recipes are posted on the Lunch in the Garden page. I made the slaw, but I’m also providing recipes for some really awesome potstickers that I made last weekend. They were too much work to make for this class!

A couple other things of interest before I move on to the pictures:

One of our K-State Plant Pathologists (think plant diseases), Megan Kennelly, was recently in Tajikistan. You can read about why she was there on the KSU Turf Blog, and see some pictures of her trip on Flickr.

Also, just for fun, here’s a blog with some beautiful pictures of lettuce planted very artistically.

All right, on to the pictures!

These are some beautiful red gooseberries that I picked from one of the plants in the Demo Garden this week. Apparently, the tradition in the U.S. is to pick gooseberries when they are green and very sour. I don’t pretend to understand. If you let them get fully ripe, they are edible fresh! I’ll be sharing a recipe for gooseberries sometime next week (after I try it out)!

The ‘Cascade’ Red Currant bush just keeps on giving. I’m getting close to having enough berries to make a pie. I’m trying to decide if I’m going to freeze them to use later or do something with them now. I’m leaning toward saving them to make a dessert for Master Gardener Basic Training in the fall.

Sorry, I had to show off another picture of the black raspberries. I know it’s rather mean of me.

I don’t know how it happened, but there are a couple of jalapenos ready to harvest already!

Aren’t the baby beans cute? This is actually from Monday, so they are a lot bigger by now. We’ll probably pick a few beans early next week.
