One of My Favorite Catalogues....The Cooks Garden

I am a sucker for catalogues. Really. I've got tons that I flip through and dream about. Everything from labels to clothing...I've got a catalog for it.

However, one of the most educational and inspirational catalogues is
The Cook's Garden. It comes from Londonderry, Vermont and they carry pretty much everything a Cook needs to grow. They've got seeds galore. Like Lettuce...they've got seeds for Merlot, Bolzano, Rossa di Trento, Curly Oakleaf, Maserati, Royal Oak Leaf, Lollo Rossa, Forellenschluss, Ballon, Little Gem, Kinemontpas, etc....who KNEW there were so MANY varietals!

And...they have cookbooks....and recipes....whooo hooo!

For those gardeners out there who are inundated with the "plant who wants to overtake the world in summer". Here are some ideas on what to do with your "zukes"

Summer Squash Enchiladas, Zucchini Pancakes, Chicken Pot Pie w/ Butternut Squash or Savory Zucchini-Rice Custard

Call them and sign up to receive their free catalogue. I think you'll be glad you did!

i LOVE cooksgarden. the descriptions, the artwork by mary azarian, everything. it's one of the few catalogs i keep around the whole year even after ordering season is over.
