Campari Shandy, by those geniuses behind Essex and Delancey. This is part of a new cocktail column and I bet each and every one will be outstanding. Evidence: The Queen Mary is my very favorite cocktail at Essex and only available when there are ripe tomatoes from their garden. Out of season now but well worth keeping around for late next summer.

    The Mexican Sour Gherkin is an amazing garden gem. I first had them years ago in a bowl of fancy gazpacho at Rick Bayless’s fancy restaurant in Chicago and have been trying to grow them ever since. Everyone who tries them from our garden goes bananas at how awesome they are–including my kids! We can never grow enough of them. That’s partly because, they’re kind of hard to get started. I seed a whole packet of these things every spring, and I’m lucky if I get one or two of them to grow (here in the temperate SF Bay area). Once they take off, they’re amazingly vigorous (and the vine is so pretty! much prettier than regular cucumber). But they’re very picky about getting started. Follow the poster’s advice closely about sun and wind.
