We grow cool weather vegetables all winter and rotate out to warm season plants around the first of May. In about four weeks the tomatoes, peppers, squash, corn, okra, beans, and cucumbers will go in. In the meantime the onions and garlic will all be pulled, cleaned, and let to dry out before I store them. I still need to start basil.
Fennel and onion salad.
Two medium sized onions sliced in thin rings
1/2 cup chopped fresh fennel
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup lemon or lime juice
Salt and pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients together, store in a covered container and marinate overnight in the refrigerator. Serve cold.
We have to eat the fennel now before the black swallowtail butterflies show up. Their babies eat our fennel and dill. I will post pictures when they show up.
