How My Garden Grows

Aug-7bbq

On August 7th, we grilled really large pieces of zucchinis for dinner (forgot to take a before picture of the rather large zucchini, but it looked like one of the zucchinis below in the next image).

And on Sunday, Sept 4th, 2011, we had a BBQ with some other families and I made this Strawberry Feta salad (I omitted the olives). It was DELICIOUS and I used tons of cherry tomatoes from the garden. I definitely want to make this salad again.

We still have some harvest left, we'll see what September brings. Is your garden still growing strong? What have you harvested lately?

I wish I was your neighbor!!

We didn't really garden at all this year, some tomato plants that I think will not produce before it gets too cold... but we DID get our fencing set up so we can protect a garden next year :)

everything looks so good! Too bad I'm not closer or I'd come over for some bread ;) Our garden is done and has been for awhile. We need to come up with a better plan for next year, the deer wiped out our green beans :(

Great loot! Is your garden still producing more?

You always do have a really impressive garden. Nothing but my small inside plants are growing right now. Everything is hibernating through the heat.

Tara said...

Damn girl! You're in cherry tomato heaven!!! How many plants do you have, anyway?

Your tomatoes are lovely...I can just imagine how delicious they are! We have had blackberries, and raspberries galore, but sadly only a few cherry tomatoes. There are tons of green tomatoes in the garden...I'm crossing my fingers that some of them ripen.
