It's been awhile since I showed my garden! It's growing like crazy. We've picked 2 heads of broccoli so far, and there are many more on the way.
Here's an overview of the chaos. I love looking out the window in the kitchen & seeing so much green.
The kiwi has tons of fruit hanging off it, just starting to ripen. This will be our first year to harvest any, as long as the birds don't get to them before we do!
The zucchini is coming along well. Soon we'll have a few large enough to pick. I tried a new location for it this year in hopes that it doesn't get eaten as much. We love zucchini, so I've been disappointed in the crop the last few years. I'm not one of those people who gets overwhelmed by the surplus. This is one veggie we don't get tired of.
A few of the tomato plants already have fruit. These are the prettiest, with their stripes. We don't buy tomatoes in the store, so we're ready when tomato season comes to eat away. I think we planted more than usual this year, plus we have tomatillas as well.
Happy 4th of July everyone! Hopefully you had a fun day, didn't get rained on, & were able to relax & celebrate with family & friends. I was off, but Walter wasn't. :-( We went to his grandparents' house (they had a picnic) during his lunch break to say hi, which was very nice. Then after he was done work, we had a campfire cookout of our own.
Here's what we've been eating in the last week:
Dinner at Mom & Pops'
- Angela's Rad Rainbow Raw Pad Thai - What a perfect summer dish! It was fresh & crisp, leaving us full but not feeling heavy. I can't wait to make it again!
Fourth of July campfire cookout
- Tofu dogs on potato rolls
- Vegetable foil packets - zucchini, mushrooms, onions & garlic
- Brian & Rachel's wedding! Congrats!!!
