Pickling cucumbers!! They are sooo much better in salads that regular cukes. They are very crisp and juicy. Of course you can pickle them too if you like.

Big, juicy, beefsteak tomatoes. I don't know how anyone can choke down the ones from a grocery store.

Tomatoes have always been my favorite. I've grown just about everything else, but I still enjoy those the most.

All I do is cut the leaves off and boil the beets until you can pierce them with a fork. Put them in the sink and rub the skins off. I use a regular table knife but first I slit the skin with a sharp knife to get it started.

Slice the warm beets and serve with butter.

I found some organic beets recently that were as good as home grown. The secret is all in the soil. Sandy soil like you'd grow carrots in and with a bit of bone meal to sweeten it and make them grow.
They are also tasty cold, sliced with mayo, salt and pepper.
