Strawberries, Malva, Lunch

10 Aug

This morning all the wild strawberries had collected dew on each leaf point:

In the garden the Malva sylvestris is in bloom:

This variety came originally from the British seed company Thompson and Morgan and had a name, now lost in the mists of time.

Since the tomatoes are ripe most days I am eating open-faced tomato sandwiches for lunch.  Necessary ingredients:

Tomato; bread, preferably homemade; mayo, ditto; and today shallot, homegrown.  The shallots I started last year from seed.  They were planted as sets this spring and have turned into lovely large shallots.  The mayo i made with garlic and used pomegranate vinegar–a drinking variety I found at the local Asian store.   Yesterday I used Russian tomatoes from Audrey.  They were fabulous, though small.  To fill out the space on the bread I cut open some Sun Golds.

Yum!

Oh, and the two campers arrived safely home this evening for supper.
