Each year, the Claytons have increased the variety of heirlooms they grow. Now, it’s about a dozen. When I went down there several weeks ago, they didn’t have any yet. But this morning, there were plenty.
Of course, we had to have some at lunch this afternoon. A sprinkling of Maldon Sea Salt, a very light dressing of extra-virgin olive oil, and a bit of fresh basil. Yum!
I also bought Early Girl tomatoes and fairytale eggplant. Clayton is the only place that grows these in our area.
Have I mentioned that I love summer vegetables?
