STEVIA! I love it! happy turtle  Bought some about 20 years ago -- hated it. Thought I'd give it another chance, since I'm so much older and wiser, now. I probably used way too much of the processed stuff back then. Now I have a nice little plant of my own, so I can use it one leaf at a time. This is gonna be fun. I might even try it in my coffee. reading

I've got the purple ones growing, but they're only about 1/2" high at the moment. Be interesting to see if they do anything before TXG.

I couldn't find local stevia seeds and so ordered some last year from a questionable ebay source. The baggie that came seemed to have something more like dust or chaff in it. Something seemed to grow from it after many weeks, but it didn't thrive and I couldn't be sure if it wasn't just something from our local rich and diverse weed community.

So ... do stevia seeds look like chaff, or did I pay $5.99 for a bag of lint? What are you eating from your garden today? - Page 3 Max-wi10

The Stevia seeds should not look like dust or lint, but they may have silks on them. The dark arrowhead shaped part is the seed, and the silks on the end of them are for the wind to disperse them.  If you get pure seeds, you will only get the dark part, but some places/people sell them with the silks attached.

Stevia seeds are very small -- 1/4" or smaller.

I had a dill from the jar that didn’t seal, so it’s in my fridge!  Wrapped in a 1/2 flour tortilla with a light bologna slice in there—yum!  And watermelon (not mine) and Bugles!

Mark, Ordering seeds off eBay, Amazon, etc., is a gamble. Most of use order from seed companies like Baker Creek, Territorial, Johnny's, Southern Exposure, Renee's . . .Request a catalog from Baker Creek and you can drool all over it.

Roasted Okra, corn on the cob (finally), Tomatoes, cucumbers.  The corn on the cob was harvested at the perfect time and the cooking was perfect.  Kernels just popped in my mouth.  Yum, Yum.

Mediterranean cukes, asparagus beans, icicle radishes (only 3 Sad ), and the cherry tomatoes are back in business Cool . Sadly, the figs are finished for this year. We never get enough of them, but we're starting 3 more trees. Maybe next year we can start canning again.

Last evening we had the first Pear Crisp from our 35-year old pear tree.  Delicious desert!  Very Happy

Everything sounds delicious!

We had BLTs with tomatoes from the garden!  Yum!  And sautéed the eggplant with garlic and onions with a bit of Parmesan!

The second planting of bush beans are starting to come in now. Picked first harvest today, and there should be 3 or 4 more before frost kills them.

A sliced up cuke and garlic and onion and many Sunsweet cherry tomatoes in a sloppy joe mix!  Delish!  Oh, and some dills that didn’t seal that have been in the fridge for about a month and a half!

Mediterranean, similar to Armenian. These are our all-time faves. They get huge. The plants are very prolific. They laugh at our heat. The skins are thin, so we eat them skins on. The texture is very tight -- almost like zucchini. The flavor is mild. They're burpless. AND they're almost fluted in shape. Here -- I'll go get a slice for a snack and take pic.

Once they get started, they grow fast -- like a zuke -- and can get almost as big. affraid

Cherry tomatoes in a chickpea salad; Blue coco beans and Butternut Squash Soup.  I had a bumper crop of Bush Butternut's this year. We've moved from a house into an apartment and I know they won't last as long as they do in a basement so I'm making soup and I think I will be freezing some as well.

Arugula (4 or 5 leaves) to go with the salad. And charcoal grilled summer squash. Anyone else like grilled squash slices? Of course, after you have coated it with olive oil, season-salted it, and grilled it, it probably doesn't count as health food any more ...

We love all kinds of grilled veggies. What a surprise the first time. I thought they'd be terrible -- just taste like burnt food. Boy, was I wrong! alrighta

The flowers only bloom for a day. Once the squash is done with them, they're great as food themselves. You can find recipes online for battered and fried blossoms, but that's a bit of work and probably not that healthy.

Chowing down on Kale, tomatoes, zucchini, carrots, chives, eggplants, Chard, bell peppers, and jalapeno peppers. I have a few clusters of grapes left on the vines, and the apples are starting to fall and the onions are up for long term storage.
