I got to raid relatives' gardens twice in one week. I felt like a jackpot winner, suddenly loaded down with bags and boxes of fat beets, zucchini boats, green home-grown celery--roots and all (I'd never even seen such a curiosity), freshly dug red potatoes, feathery Italian parsley, bouquets of rainbow chard, fragrant peaches, voluptuous red raspberries, and pungent tomatoes of every ilk. For the moment, my little fridge-top freezer is packed, and there are still plenty of fresh produce meals on my "to make" list.

Hats off to the generous gardeners.
