thirty truths: 20

I play it down but the truth is I’m thrilled that Peter is as nuts about growing things from scratch as he is. I don’t have the patience for fiddling with dirt inside.

This year, in addition to his famous peppers and tomatoes, he’s got English cukes, bright orange cosmos and what he hopes is gold bar zucchini (we had it one year—makes the best soup—but have never found quite the same variety since)… AND—my favourite—mini cornichons from seeds he bought in Paris. (Best pickled and eaten by the fire on nuits de neige with a bottle of vin rouge, tiny boiled potatoes, thinly sliced parma ham and raclette.)
