Gazpacho Fever

The Wednesday Crew is gearing up for the Fall Festival.  Cuttings have been started as well as seedlings.  There will be lots of activities including a perennial swap and honey extraction!
Meanwhile, the open markets continue in Oak Bluffs.  Tomatoes, eggplant, okra and flowers have been good sellers.
I have been making a lot of gazpacho.  Most of the ingredients are available at the Greenhouse.
Have you noticed the new sign yet?  We are now "the Greenhouse of Martha's Vineyard."

Here is my favorite recipe for Gazpacho.  Enjoy!

6 large ripe juicy tomatoes
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
¼ cup olive oil
3 cloves garlic
1 fresh chopped jalapeno or half a garden salsa pepper
1 cut up red onion
            Process tomatoes and garlic until pureed.  Depending on audience I also puree the onion and hot pepper.  If you prefer you can chunk them and add them with the following vegetables.
1 chopped green pepper
1/3 cup of mixture of basil and Italian parsley chopped
1 chopped large cucumber
2 tsp salt
Fresh black pepper
Pulse in the food processor until vegetables are chopped but not pureed.
