Early Eggplants: The eggplants grown by Day’s Walk Farm come in small sizes, perfect for a side dish for one or two people. There are long and skinny purple ones and round fat stripy white ones – try them grilled or roasted with a little olive oil. Catch them at Coburg on Saturday.
Speedy Squash: Going from scarcity to abundance, zucchini and squash are in full production now. Pick up some sweet pale-skinned zucchini from Spring Creek Organics at Carlton, Woodend or Flemington and try a simple saute with almonds, butter and garlic.
