It's the time of year when I get to enjoy the fruits of my labor (literally!), so I figured I'd share a few pictures of the garden over the past couple months and the produce it's bearing. Things are A LOT bigger now, so more photos to come soon... I promise!
|Mid-June shot of most of the garden. Tomatoes, Squash, and Corn all look good!|
|Basil, Chives, Thai Basil!|
|Squash Flowers, Yellow Squash, Cucumbers, & Zucchini|
Cucumber tomato salad has also been a staple for the past couple weeks!
|Tomatoes and eggplant, too!|
Figuring out what to do with tomatoes is never a problem for me. Paired with Buffalo Mozzarella and topped with fresh basil, a dash of kosher salt, and a drizzle of EVOO is probably my favorite way to get them in my belly. I love making fresh marinara and will certainly can as many jars as possible to get me through the winter!
|Doesn't that just look like summer?!|
Disclaimer: The container garden you see from my window is my neighbor's! Tom is an older Italian man who often gives me tours of his pride and joy. We also trade seeds and plants and he looks after my garden when I'm not around.
