Oh, how my garden grows.....

Before picture.......
My garden is producing lots of yummy veggies right now. My tomatoes are just now coming in. I have put up about 14 quarts of green beans and 5 quarts of squash (we are not BIG eaters of squash unless it is FRIED!!!). I will probably can some pickles tomorrow.

The other night, I cooked some things from the garden. We had fried okra, stewed squash with bell peppers, jalapeno peppers, and onions, macaroni & cheese, white beans, cucumbers in salty water, tomatoes, and of course cornbread. Good ol' Southern Cookin' and of course I had a Sun-Drop to drink! After the picture, I took the tomato and pepper off of my plate....I do not eat them. :)

  1. Oh yum! Everything looks wonderful - nothing like the freshest of produce and it doesn't get any fresher than just picked from your own garden.

  2. Your garden look wonderful. I love fresh home grown produce. We have to grow ours in the winter here in the desert. So glad you are enjoying yours. Hugs, Marty

  3. All your veggies look delicious, especially the fried okra (that's my favorite!). I don't cook okra much though because I don't like working with's difficult to pick and slimy to slice. I sure do like eating it though!
