Fresh out of the garden today. Carrots. An heirloom mix which will go in tonight's dinner of honey roasted carrot risotto. I usually make a roasted pumpkin risotto but all of last summer's pumpkins are gone. So carrots it is. Actually risotto kind of lends itself all kinds of flavours as long as you stick to the basic formula of rice, white wine and stock.
That's what came out of the ground today along with some underwhelming garlics. Into the ground went:
- 5 Amish Paste tomatoes
- 6 Diggers Mix tomatoes
- 2 Black Bounty eggplants
- 2 purple globe artichokes
- 3 tomatillo plants
- 12 sweet basil plants to keep the tomatoes company
