Fruits of the Earth...

Okay, the only thing in this ratatouille that's from my own garden are the basil and the parsley, but the roma tomatoes are locally grown...

And the bread is from a local restaurant, with bakery and catering wing: Wildflour (yes, it's spelled correctly!).

I saw that Anne was making some and it made me hungry. So I made my own. It's very good and there's enough for several meals!

If only my squash had done something - but you know what? I think this has been a lousy year for it: my sis-in-law was saying she'd gotten 3-4 that were just pint-sized and the skin very tough, and then we stopped at a local orchard for peaches and nectarines today, and even their local summer squash were pint-sized and tough.

(sigh)
Just not a good year around here, I guess...

Ratatouille is a summer favorite of mine... I am trying to grow eggplants, but they are slow. Tomatoes and blackberries are coming on strong though:)
