vegetables for vacation

beets 160

I made a couple of really nice vegetable dishes on vacation for a big family gathering. Above are some pretty beets. A mix of all three varieties I am growing: Chiogga, Lutz and White Detroit. I also made a big dish of fava beans (podded, sauteed, and mixed with sauteed corn and carrots) and a couple big dishes of summer squash (saute sliced Vidalia onions, then add sliced squash and saute til done).

  • Kathy, I am really enjoying your garden blog! You said you harvested favas- did you plant them in the fall or this spring? I planted some this spring and have had a small harvest, but some of the seeds are for fall planting. ANy fava advice? Karen B.

  • These were spring favas. I plant fava beans at the same time I plant peas. This year I planted on March 17th (St Patrick's Day). Favas like the cool weather.

    I've never tried a fall crop of fava beans. I just entered a comment about my experience and plans for planting fall peas here. Maybe I'll try a few fava beans too when I plant the fall peas. They were very tasty!

  • Where can I found those vegetables? I have never heard of those vegetables before. It looks great. That bowl of vegetables It looks good and I think it is a healthy dish.
