First peas and other baby veg

There's nothing yummier than snap peas straight from the vine, still warm from the sun.

One of many baby cukes (National Pickling).

Super Fantastic tomatoes off to a super fantastic start.

To me, the smell of summer is dill. I love running my hands through the dill to make the smell rise. I've been eating baby potatoes with whole cream, fried onions and dill for the past week. I haven't had that since my mom passed away - I've been scared to try my hand at it. But it turned out okay. Yum! Thanks Mom!

Everything looks great! I love snap peas fresh from the garden. There's nothing sweeter.

It looks great there. Those potatoes sound really good, might have to try them. I have dill but always forget about it since it's in an out of the way spot. I'm going to make a point of smelling it today :)

Ah, dill is a Ukrainian staple. We put it in everything, hahaha I can't imagine not having dill. There are a bunch of Ukrainian dishes that we traditionally eat in the summer - all involving dill and cream, and most involving either bread or potatoes or both! Carbs, cholesterol, calories, meh.
