sewgreen: I'd love it if you could share your tabouli recipe!

1 cup cracked bulgur wheat
*   1 1/2 teaspoons salt
*   1 1/2 cups water
*   1/3 cup olive oil
*   1/3 cup lemon juice
* 1 bunch   green onions
*   1 medium tomatoe
*    1 medium cucumber (I'll be usng my lemon cucumbers this time!)
*    parsley as much as u like


Soak the Bulgur
Begin by bringing the water to a boil. Combine the bulgur and salt in a large bowl. Pour the boiling water over the bulgur, cover the bowl, and let it sit for half an hour.

Combine the Ingredients
While the bulgur is soaking, we will prepare the other ingredients. Dice the vegetables into small pieces, and chop the herbs finely.
After half an hour, when the bulgur is ready, add the olive oil and lemon juice. Place this mixture in the refrigerator until it is chilled.

Not really anything different than the regular way you make it, except, I try different types of the veggies listed. Wink

All of these veggies are making me jealous-my garden is just coming in here in Colorado, We've had peas, lettuce, beans and a few summer squash, but the real tomato/corn/bean haul will still be in a few weeks-and winter squash/pumpkins aren't for another month-which could be our first snow, too!!

All of the green might be from too much nitrogen...or maybe they're just waiting to pounce on you!!
Here are my super tall sunflowers-I estimate that the tallest is close to 10 feet now. They were some very old Russian Mammoth seeds that I just threw in the 3 Sisters Garden before the squash took over.

hit it with some nitrogen and it should definitely fruit/bloom.  coffee grounds are a GREAT source of nitrogen.. if you don't drink coffe, call your local coffee store, a lot of places bag them up for gardeners (even Starbucks)
