This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

mexican cole claw

cole slaw ingredients
frying taco shells taco with slaw

I got the idea for this Mexican cole slaw recipe from a TV show on fish tacos. Its great with any kind of tacos - and maybe even any meal. Perfect with fresh homegrown cabbage. The unexpected combination of cabbage, lime juice and cilantro is just fantastic.

1 cup cabbage, sliced
1 scallion, chopped
1 tsp lime juice
2 tsp sour cream
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
2 slices pickled jalapenos

Mix all ingredients. Use more or less of everything to your taste, but don't use too much sour cream (or jalapenos!). Makes 2 servings.

Good thing for you that I live in CA, or I'd be at your door for dinner! I'm going to make this...with farmer's market veggies...and too many jalapenos!

Hi Aliceb! Make sure you have a cool beverage handy after all those jalapenos.

I even bought a fresh Hatch chile last week. Its chile season! We chopped it up with the chicken that went into the tacos. Very tasty. Our local Whole Foods has some good items.

(You could mail order - click on Hatch above for a link that looks nice.)
