Produce on the hoof

The property we live on is located in a very fertile valley and has been farmed in the past.  In the springtime evidence of this just pops up sometimes.

This is the road that Nerone and I walk down sometimes.  Costotantino always makes sure to cut this patch.  After he cuts, look what appears…

Someone comes along and harvests it.  Probably Costo or his wife, Lecca.  Nearer to the house, behind the garage  is a patch of artichokes

I know Lecca cuts these. 


But the not to be missed item is….

My celery!  It is very crisp and very tasty.  I will be harvesting it all soon to make way for tomatoes.  It is a true treat.
