Garden update time, I’ve got some new pretty flowers to show off.
So here she is, click on the picture for unbridled panoramic glory.

Lots of flowers! I’ll start on the left. Here’s my honeydew, I can’t wait to see if this actually works. I love melon strategy.. just biding its time with its small leaves and then BAM! tendrils, what’s up now.

The summer squash, right on time.

Eggplant, hanging in there.

Basil and tomatoes, my Italian wonderland.

A regrettably bad picture of the kale and flowered cilantro.

And the star of the show, fava beans!

So yeah, fava beans! Tonight I made a fava bean hummus with kale that just blew my mind.

I pretty much followed this recipe and added in a few leaves of kale.

Oh yeah and another thing! I don’t peel my carrots, I don’t pare my potatoes, and I most certainly do not skin my fava beans. Not for this recipe anyway, though I most certainly do appreciate their beautiful color. I heard inner beauty is more important anyways.
