Garden Update

This was the garden at the end of May...

And this is the garden at the end of July...

Every year the bounty takes me by surprise. I'm so thankful for it, because really I have no idea what I'm doing in the garden. But apparently it works! Those two little potted beauties in the foreground by the way, are more fig trees from my Bro-in-law, Sam. So we now have 5 fig trees! It's almost an orchard!!

This...well, this is a cantaloupe. It had sisters but I accidently ended their lives prematurely.

Here they are. Not ready. Taken from the garden far too soon. I'm so sorry little ones. I told you I don't know what I'm doing.

Thankfully, most everything else has been picked at the right time. These were
picked last week.

And I made this with some of it...

Grilled vegie sandwiches with basil pesto for dinner. Yum. My friend, Anne Marie, has given me a specific recipe for a sandwich like this which I hope to try this week and share with you. But today I'll be making zucchini breads to eat and to freeze, ratatouille for dinner and I'm going to try to make sundried tomatoes with these golden delicacies that I just picked this morning:

These are Sungold cherry tomatoes. They are soooo sweet and they have never let me down. Once they start growing, they don't want to stop! That's my kind of vegie. What's your favorite - to grow or to eat?

  1. Your vegetables are gorgeous!! The sandwich looks yummy, and I'd love the recipe. I can't grow squat. And I love most vegetables, but not a big corn fan.
