This recipe is incredibly flexible, and can be adjusted for any other type of chilli pepper — or sweet pepper for that matter. The key phrase is "quick pickle." Use this basic brine for blanched baby carrots, beans, asparagus, and so on. I'm a fan of pickled jalapeños, and the recipe is so simple to make that spending money on store-bought ones seems wasteful.

One of the best tips for summer transplants is to have pumpkin (also cucumber, zucchini, and melon) transplants ready to plant as soon as garlic is harvested from a fall previous planting. In my garden that meant sowing four inch pots with Naked Bear about June 15th, since my garlic was ready to come out mid-July. On the same day, we harvested garlic, dug in some replacement manure and glacial rock dust, and transplanted the pumpkin starts.

How to roast pumpkin seeds. For something of a shortcut, these recipes can also be produced using plain raw pumpkin seeds (pepitas) from the supermarket. The principle is the same for each, mixing a bit of fat and some spices onto each batch of seeds before roasting the seeds in the oven. Saltiness and spiciness can be controlled when making the initial mix, and all sorts of spice blends, masalas, and curry powders would work as well. These three variations are quite savoury, but could be switched out for cinnamon and sugar, vanilla, maple, cocoa, and so on.
