A Garden Update

gardenproduce

I've been meaning to show you what's been going on in our garden lately, but time just keeps running away from me. So, here you have it. We turned this (above) into this (below):

producemeal

falafelhit

We used Romaine lettuce & cherry tomatoes from the garden to make falafel (in a pita).

attablefalafel

Shockingly, both boys gobbled it up.

There's been some more red.

And lots of green. From our zucchini loot we made:

zukebbq

Grilled Zucchini on the BBQ for dinner.

zukebreads

Two zucchini breads (one with chocolate chips & one without).

zukefood

Some purée for Quentin.

zuketray

And even more to freeze.

zukeice

Zucchini purée after frozen.

Quentin was eager to try the zucchini!

Sean's been a huge helper in the garden this summer.
It's so nice to share it with him.
How's your garden growing?

Your garden is always so inspiring. So much so that I attempted my first vegetable garden this year and was so excited to actually see things growing. Our new puppy squeezed his way under the little fence that surrounds it and completely destroyed everything! I was so upset. He tore everything up by the roots and chewed it into oblivion. Next year I'm starting the plants indoors (like you did before they were tossed out, gasp!) and putting up chicken wire under the fence.

Yum yum your garden loot looks super tasty! I'm sure Sean has been a great help...I know my boys sure love to help in the garden.

Great bounty from the garden. Glad Quentin likes the zucchini. We've just started using it more for stir fries or roasting. Good to have a helper too I bet :)

Mmmm . . . zucchini!! I have had some success with basil, tomatoes, green peppers, and oregano. Better than last year I guess! :)

I think I planted my zucchini too late this year, I haven't even gotten ONE! But my tomatoes, cukes, beans and pumpkins are doing great.
