I love this time of year and all of the wonderful, fresh produce the summer brings.  My dad is what I’d like to call  a greenie genie, or in other words, an incredible gardener.  And I’m very grateful that he’s so generous with his delicious vegetables.  Farmer Ed (a.k.a. my dad) gardens as a hobby.  His garden is pretty amazing for someone who only gardens as an avocation.  His garden is 3/4 of an acre, which is considerably big for a back-yard vegetable patch.  He has a fence around the perimeter as well as some kind of string barrier on top of it, attached to a post.  Not really sure what it’s called.  And the best part is, he uses organic farming methods.

I guess I have a right to the wonderful produce since my sisters and brothers did our fair share of weeding the garden growing up!  My dad grows blueberries;  raspberries; corn (my FAVORITE); green and red bell peppers;  potatoes;  zucchini;  yellow squash;  green beans; snap peas (my number 2 favorite); pumpkins; tomatoes (I’m still waiting on those!); cucumbers; Concord grapes;  cantaloupe; and watermelon (can’t wait for these to be ready)!   I appreciate all my dad’s hard work and it is HARD work.

Yesterday, he made a delivery to my house.  I was blessed with corn, green beans, string beans, cucumbers, and green bell peppers.  I don’t mind eating vegetables plain but today I was REALLY craving onion dip for these goodies.  Only problem is onion dip is not very healthy and I am trying to be a good girl.  So today after I got home from summer school,  I decided to make onion dip with a Lipton Soup mix and Greek Yogurt.  I was apprehensive about how it would turn out, but I swear you can’t even taste the difference!
