There are so many zucchini and cucumbers coming on.  The tomatoes are just starting to really produce.  As there are no gophers in garden this year, my green beans are still growing and producing.  I just blanched a bag of beans over the weekend and tossed them in the freezer.  The jalapenos are beginning to really produce.  Of course, I have lots of kale and some basil and cilantro.  It has been a lovely year in the garden and I’m looking forward to eating form the garden all winter long.  🙂

A Bite of Dinner

Well, I had to start sharing some of the things I made with the ample produce from my garden.

If you recall the leeks, potatoes, and kale? They made a very lovely soup one evening.

The green beans and potatoes went into my favorite pot. Along with a bit of onion (and bacon not pictures), I cooked them until everything was tender and lovely. This might be one of my favorite ways to use green beans. Although, Avi did make a nice dish with the green beans and onions one night.

Of produce coming from the garden.  I’m still harvesting a fair amount of beans.  The zucchini just won’t stop.  I think I’m pulling somewhere around 6-24 a day.  The lowest I have counted is 6 and the highest I have counted is 24.  The light green ones continue to out produce the dark green ones.  The cucumbers are starting to produce well as are the jalapenos.  I pulled a handful of the leeks as well.  The are a bit small, but I was really hankering for some leeks.  Of course, I have lots of kale.  Finally, the tomatoes are starting to produce just enough that we can bring them in and enjoy them instead of tasting them out in the garden.

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!

The kale and cilantro are going gung-ho. We’ve picked just a little to play with in a quiche or frittata. I am seriously thinking of trying kale chips too.

The zucchini have blossomed in this photo and we are starting to reap the tiny rewards.

Here are the fruits of the zucchini. And some of those lovely green beans too. 20150712_094422

In fact, I picked that sad eggplant too.  Maybe I’ll have to find some eggplant, zucchini, kale, and green bean dish. It seems like I might have some to use!

Vegetables in the Garden

I’m sure the garden has grown a lot while I’ve been away at TNNA. Here is how it looked just before I left.

Kale’s eye view.

The peppers are all in a line.

The onions look stately. Tiny, but stately.

The tomatoes are all planted and the potatoes are behind them.

You can sort of see the green beans and peas in this shot. It’s a bit of a long view of the garden.
