Flowering Vegetables

Today it rained for the first time since the 18th June. It started with a light drizzle, while I was raking over a bed, but then developed into a full blown downpour, but luckily not for too long. It gave everything a nice watering without causing any damage. Above just a few photos of how pretty vegetables can be as well. On top a courgette flower, which of course is edible either stuffed with ricotta, stir-fried with a light tempura-like coating or in oil with some delicate herbs as a pasta sauce. The middle one is an aubergine flower and the bottom one is one that one should normally not see. Some of my radicchio lettuces have shot to flower and they turned out to be very picturesque.
