... ever so slowly .. or perhaps I'm just impatient ... not a good trait for a gardener ;( We've had good success with sugar peas, lettuce, raspberries, onions, herbs and rhubarb. My potatoes are being eaten 'alive' by the voles and I'm having to harvest them early so I have some for ourselves ... which means the spuds are rather puny. Next year all root crops will be planted in raised beds lined with wire mesh to keep the pests at bay
Garden Medley Potato Salad:
red onion, diced
diced sugar peas (in their shells)
potato salad dressing (recipe below)
salt & pepper to taste
1-2 pieces crispy bacon, minced
Boil desired quantity of potatoes (I ended up with about six cups when diced). Cool slightly and dice leaving skins intact. Place in large bowl. Add diced red onion, celery, sugar peas (about 1 cup each). Toss with potato salad dressing and add salt, pepper and celery seeds and minced bacon to taste. Chill.
Potato Salad Dressing: (makes approx 1 cup)
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard powder
Crack egg in a small sauce pan and whisk well. Add remaining ingredients, whisking well. Cook over medium heat stirring continually until the ingredients are bubbly and thick. Pour into a small mixing bowl to cool. Add 1/2 cup mayo and mix well. Toss with potato/veggie mixture and mix well.
