The Garden Continues to Grow


I’m still finding quite a few cucumbers and zucchini in the garden. Thought the zucchini has finally slowed down a bit. That is a good thing. I do have to admit to loving the zucchini chips, but not having enough time to process all of them.

I’m also still finding green beans in the garden. This is rather amazing to me as last year the gophers ate my bean plants and I didn’t have many beans after July. When my thighs burn from picking them, I just remind myself how nice it is to have fresh green beans.

There are still some eggplants on the plants and I’m enjoying them enough that I think I will put in a few more plants next year. I could really use some more to make eggplant parmigiana. Yum. Eggplant parmigiana.

More Veggies!


Cucumbers, zucchini, green beans, tomatoes, eggplant, okra, and some potatoes. I am enjoying myself so much. The garden is a lot of work, but I really do love the produce and how healthy I feel from digging around in the dirt. Plus. So. MUCH. Satisfaction. Building a dish or a sauce with things I have grown. I’m sure there will be a few more photos of the lovely garden produce before the season is over!

Fruiting Anew



The garden has started to produce some really lovely things. I have already started digging potatoes. It’s strange that it is so early, but the plants had died back. We enjoyed a lovely dinner with the eggplants. I keep looking at those new potatoes and imagining lovely things with them, but I just haven’t quite decided the best way to prepare them yet. Again, just a few tomatoes in the basket. I’m looking forward to the jalapenos. Avi says they are sweet, but I suspect they were just not quite ripe when he tried one.

Tiny hot peppers. I think these are the jalapenos. I’m not sure though.


Lovely first cucumber. There are more on the way. So many lovely flowers.


Eggplants. They are the tiny variety. I made sure to buy them because I like them so much better than the giant Italian variety.


Tomatoes. I haven’t had many yet, only a handful of the little golden nugget kind.


These are the tigerella tomatoes. I love the green stripes on these fruits.


Zucchini. I might have a few zucchini. Ahem.


Green beans. Or in this case, purple beans. I really love this variety. They are fast, productive, tender, and easy to spot.


Also, the lovely sugarpot watermelon has decided to produce a tiny watermelon for me.

Garden In The Evening


Cucumbers. I don’t have any yet, but I know they are coming. Look at all of the lovely plants and flowers growing up my cage.


Lots of tomatoes growing and growing.  We have had only a very few golden nugget cherry tomatoes so far.  


Potatoes!  I’m a little excited about the potatoes.


The eggplant are just starting to produce nicely.  I’m really happy with the little eggplants coming on.  


The zucchini has really come into its own. I’ve been harvesting the light colored zucchini for a couple of weeks, but the dark green is just starting to produce.  The cilantro and kale are growing really well too!



The okra, basil, basil, thai basil, and cilantro are just starting to really grow. 


Lots of green beans and some lovely onions too! 

How Does the Garden Grow Post 2

I promised another quick look at the garden. Here we go again.


Cucumbers. Growing and vining. I’m waiting for the first flowers to appear. I’m sure cucumbers will be in my future soon. Whoo!


The green beans are happy and bushy in their rows. I’m picking some lovely green, yellow, and purple beans. In fact, I think I’m bringing in about 3/4 of a gallon every day or every other day. Love my beans.


Green tomatoes on the vine. See? Just a few right now. I’m hoping for a bumper crop of lovely tomatoes too. We used that tomato puree I made last year all winter. I think there are just a few jars left.


The eggplants are just getting started with their crops. We have one abused eggplant on the plant here. I call it abused because it has been gnawed on in several places, but continues to fight on.


The zucchini has become a jungle. Yes. A veritable zucchini jungle. I’m plucking them young and tender. I just hope Avi remembers to pick them when I’m gone judging at the end of the month! Can you imagine how many and how big the zucchini would be if he forgot for 3 days? Yikes!


Lots of onions are growing big and strong too. I think we’ll be able to harvest a few at the end of the month.

Eggplant and Tomatoes


So, the Japanese eggplants are starting to produce nicely. I’ve had 2 other small eggplants from the plants and I’m looking forward to enjoying a few more. The zucchini are growing as strongly as ever and the tomatoes are doing their thing. I’m so excited that the large tomatoes are starting to ripen. I love fresh tomatoes from the garden. Actually, it’s the only way I’ll eat fresh tomatoes. I can’t abide the store bought ones.

And I’ve made a batch of fantastic Vicki’s Roasted Tomato Sauce. I’ll have to tell you about that another day though.
