I'm a patient gardener, are you?

I've been known to plant one special chile pepper just to make one special recipe. It took all summer to tend that Holy Mole plant, but it was worth it.

With its new series of custom recipes and videos, All-America Selections (AAS) makes it easy for all vegetable gardeners who like to cook, as well as cooks who like to garden.

The AAS cooking video series for 2018 features five custom recipes that use the tastiest of the nonprofit organization's edible winners. 

Washington, D.C., chef Jonathan Bardzik created a series of recipes with combinations of vegetables you can grow in your garden this year. Just imagine preparing Watermelon Gazpacho or Strawberry Fennel salad with the freshest possible ingredients.

All of Bardzik's recipe creations use in-season fruits and vegetables that are easy to grow in vegetable gardens, raised bed gardens, patio pots and window boxes. Fifteen different AAS winners make for some delicious spring-through-summer eating.

For the Watermelon Gazpacho, you'll want to plant Mini Love watermelons, Midnight Snack tomatoes, Chili Pie peppers and Dolce Fresca basil.

If you're into Italian food, you'll want to plant the ingredients for Minestrone Pasta: Prism kale, Mad Hatter peppers, Seychelles pole beans and Chef's Choice yellow tomatoes. 

All of the Cooking from the Garden recipes are available for viewing on the AAS YouTube channel  or watch the videos and download the printable recipes from the AAS website.
