A view of the garden from my kitchen window -- Pete and Maddie are in the background harvesting a carrot. . .
(Yes, he is happy to see you -- he he.) We had very few carrots come up and I guess I was too lazy to do a second planting, but at least we have a few. And I only need one for the pasta sauce I'm making tomorrow.
And since the tomatoes are finally turning red, I decided to make some garden salsa. Luckily we still have a few jalapenos ripening, so I was able to throw a couple of those in there too.
Julie's Garden Salsa
3 medium sized tomatoes, diced
2 jalapenos, finely diced, seeds removed (unless you like it hot!)
1/2 of a small red onion, finely diced
1 large or 2 small cloves of garlic, finely diced or run through a garlic press
Juice of 1/2 lime
Salt to taste
Just combine everything, stir well and taste. Add more of whatever you think it needs.
My salsa is a bit lacking because my cilantro has already gone to seed and the grocery didn't stock cilantro (?!?) but no matter, gotta make do with what you have.
