Garden Update: I can taste the veggies!

With all this rain and hot weather, my garden has been growing at a rapid speed.  I am lucky that my garden is a "raised" garden so the heavy rains haven't hindered it as much as some other gardens. 

I harvested my first cabbage today!  This beauty is going to be used to make a Chinese Cabbage Slaw recipe!

I will be eating fresh broccoli by the end of the week as well!  YUM!

This is my first zucchini that is setting on!  It won't be long until my freezer will be filled with Zucchini Bread and Zucchini Pie!

My tomato plants are a bushy mess; however, they are starting to fill with blooms.  Better mark my calender for canning days full of tomato juice and catsup!

At first glance, my second planting of green beans are looking good...

It turns out that dirty rotten varmit has been back. I decided that it can have my green beans as long as it leaves everything else alone.  If you have extra green beans this year, I might know someone who you can share with!

My cucumbers have a long way to go since I had to replant them as well.  However, I am already looking at pickle recipes to try out.  Let me know if you have a good one!

I hope you enjoyed this garden tour! I bet you can taste the veggies already!


  1. Everything looks so great! I'm kicking myself because I never got my garden in this year. :(

  2. wow, it looks like everything is coming right along. I am anxious to start harvesting things out of my garden as well. Your zuchinni pie sounds intriguing. I plan on making a choc. chip zuchini cake with mine.

  3. Can't wait for zuchinni bread with chocolate chips...yummy!

  4. Yay! I just picked zuchinni and cukes this week... and TONS of taters.
