July and some of us are finally seeing some results of our hopeful Spring gardening. Growing food never ceases to fill me with awe. It seems like magic that a tiny seed grows into something you can eat.

Don't just add them to your salads, put them in smoothies, make chilled summer soups, dip them and stir fry them
