Thumbs up

It's still early in the season, but I'm going to go ahead and give the Jamie stamp of approval to the Sungold tomatoes. I hadn't tried this breed before, but I can tell you now, straight up, that the seed companies aren't kidding about its prolificness or its tangy-sweet taste.

That's one of my Stavros pepperoncini on top. I think I'm going to like them a lot, too, although no pepper ever seems to be as wildly generous as the good ol' jalapeƱo (which I am just about ready to start pickling!).

For what it's worth, the Ichiban eggplants are coming fast and thick, too. No sign of the Rosa Biancas yet; they must take longer to get going.

Hmm. I see some panzanella in my future. And some pico de gallo.
