Garden Update

Things have really gone wild since the last time I showed you photos of our garden.  First here’s a refresher:

Looks pretty good right?  Nice and green, pretty full plants, looks about done right?  Well…..

wait for it….

wait for it….

wait for it….

BAM!

We are being taken over by tomatoes and squash!  One rouge squash vine is taking over our fence, hope the neighbor doesn’t mind.

But look at how cute the little baby butternut squash are!

We also have cherry tomatoes…

…Roma tomatoes…

….and some Big Boys

I couldn’t leave out the raspberries either.  We didn’t get a very large harvest the first time around.  I think the birds beat us to the punch.  We got some netting to cover the plants and, fingers crossed, we’ll get enough to make some jam this time.

It’s so much fun to watch this stuff grow!  We’re going to have this stuff coming out of our ears!  I’m getting ready to try some new recipes to make sure we don’t let it go to waste.

Anyone out there have favorite dishes for squash and tomatoes?

  1. Ooh! I’ve been cooking with tomatoes a ton lately! Try tomato and carmelized onion cobbler from Martha Stewart. Or tomato and pancetta linguini (so good) from Gourmet Magazine. I can give you both or either recipes if you want!
