My 4th of July harvest is escarole and basil. I ended up with way too much, so this is the box I put out to share with my neighbors.
I thought the big heads of escarole looked nice broken in half and tied with a string. This way the blanched inner leaves show.
In past years, I would have had my family or some friends over the celebrate the 4th in our patio. I have often posted photos of my mom or my sister picking vegetable in my garden. Not this year. Everything remains very quiet with COVID around. No guests, no parties, no family or neighborhood gatherings. My husband and I (and our two dogs) had a nice classic American dinner (hot dogs, baked, beans, and potato salad) and popped a cork on our own. It was very nice, in a quiet sort of way.
