pizza of the week: pear tomatoes, squash blossoms & basil two ways

pizza: pear tomatoes, squash blossoms & basil two ways

These days, I circle the garden's vegetable beds like a hawk, looking for anything coming ripe. Gently squeezing, testing, peeking under leaves. Each day, the baby alpine strawberry plants yield a scant harvest, which Jacky and I gobble straight up. Same with the blueberries, but those plants are a couple years old, so there's more to gobble. Summer: yum.

As for this year's crops, I watch the tomato pots carefully, poaching off a couple pear tomatoes here, a few cherry tomatoes there. Perhaps I grab a basil plant that's getting edged out by unfurling squash leaves. Oh, how about some squash blossoms while we're at it?

That's kind of how tonight's pizza came about. A nice little pick-around in the garden.
