This was July 5th, 2008. Red currants. They were not available last week at the farmers' market. It has been a slower year. Things are late.

I cannot believe I pickled those onions a year ago. They have been eaten, of course. Next time less sugar, more bite.
Huh. I wonder where that string bag is. I miss it.
Below: these are last year's Dunyazades, from the same bulbs, naturally.
Here is the current crop:

Lilies are especially good from all angles.
