Garden Update

I am so enjoying my adventures in gardening this summer. Every day it’s a treat to go out and pick what’s ready to eat. And it’s all tasted really good! We had zucchini with dinner the other night, I’ve used green onions several times, and last night we used our first bell pepper in a black bean and corn salad. Right now I have 5 zucchini in my fridge waiting to be used. I’m thinking of Zucchini Muffins, but I am open for your suggestions!

Harvested 6/25/09
This was our last head of lettuce for the season.
We used it for BLTs with Roasted Garlic Mayo.

Harvested 7/4/09
Isn’t that bell pepper funny looking?
We used it last night chopped up in a black bean and corn salad.

The Count So Far:
  • Bibb Lettuce – 8 or 10 heads (I lost track)
  • Grape Tomatoes – 24
  • Yellow Pear Tomato – 1
  • Zucchini – 6
  • Strawberries – 10
  • Green Onions – 3 bunches
  • Sugar Snap Peas – 75+ (I lost track)
  • Plus virtually unlimited access to fresh basil, cilantro, dill, tarragon, and parsley

A Few of the Meals we’ve Made:

  • Crunchy Asian Pasta Salad (sugar snap peas)

That lettuce is incredible! What about a goat cheese and zucchini risotto? I made one last night and it was fab!

Wow - what a beautiful & prolific garden! Ours is still growing, but we did enjoy a salad of "baby" lettuces last night. Mmmm - can't wait for my cherry tomatoes to start ripening. Love eating them right off the vine. Beautiful pictures - beautiful food! The BLT salad - YUMMO!
