Well, it’s the middle of August and summer vacation is almost over. It’s getting to be the time of year when gardeners who plant cool weather crops for the fall are transplanting their broccoli, cauliflower and collard transplants. It’s also time to think about planting the seeds of lettuce, spinach, kohlrabi, bok choi, kale, mustard and other fall greens for fall harvest. But once the morning’s planting is done, my stomach tells me it’s time to think about lunch.
So what is for lunch? Well, since it’s summer, it has to be BLTs. Despite their low yield, Brandywine tomatoes have to be my favorite tomato both for its size and taste. So it’s in from garden to fry up some bacon, toast some bread, rinse some lettuce and slice a Brandywine. The old adage is that a picture is worth a thousand words, so I think I’ll stop blogging and sit down for lunch.
