The Garden Grows

We've been blessed with rain, 
pollinators, 
and a good growing season.
"The devil's in the details"...
or are these angels?

For a nice summer lunch we had lightly floured fried summer squash, coleslaw, brussel sprouts, tomatoes and cucumbers...all from our garden.  Couldn't get much fresher than that!  We are blessed.

Would you please come cook for me? Bring your fresh veggies. :)

Sounds like you're eating well! :) I love having produce fresh from the garden. We've been overly blessed here with rain too, and things are growing like crazy. I've picked 100 (at least!) cucumbers already, and my tomatoes are just starting to ripen.

Oh yes the rain! The first day and night of our camping trip (just back from Wisconsin) was filled with the lovely wet stuff which made it quite the trick to set up camp! Your greenery is lovely here!

Definitely angels. What a perfectly healthy and yummy lunch you had. You will live long and prosper with grub like that.

I am getting lots of tomatoes, but no squash, no peppers, no watermelon. I have no idea why, and I know all those things grow here. Something must have gone awry.

Judy said...

I'm at my sister's - she's the gardener in our family - and we picked about a hundred cherry tomatoes this evening. Tomorrow we'll dehydrate them and then put them in the blender to make tomato powder. Next winter we'll add some of that summer goodness to our soups. Yum! Tomorrow we'll pick the last of the green beans and maybe by Monday the purple hull peas will be ready. Love summer gardens! blessings, marlene

Red cabbage Angels . . . FOR SURE . . .
Have you been canning, freezing, storing foods for winter?
Wonderful garden produce-production Gail!
Worth all the hard work?
