I've fallen in love with everything the garden is producing this year. Here are some shots I've taken over the last couple weeks.
A little look at our section of the garden. We've since pulled up the corn. So it looks a little bare on the left side. My favorite part of this picture is the squash vine that has come down to our bottom tier from the top of the garden. I love how wild and crazy squash plants get.
Oh raspberries! I eat these right off the bush, enjoy them in shakes and more. Before the summer is over I am hoping to make a tart with vanilla pastry cream and fresh raspberries on top.
We planted scallions by accident. I thought I was grabbing seeds for shallots and wasn't paying attention. Though we are sad we didn't grow our beloved shallots we have been very happy with these purple scallions. I've been adding them to everything. Love them in salads, on turkey sandwiches, scrambled eggs...everything!
Our green zebra-striped tomatoes are almost ready. I've been so anxious for these all summer. Thank goodness I've got heirloom tomatoes coming to me weekly from my CSA order. Anyone have a favorite recipe using green zebras?
We planted a lot of onions this year. And it's a good thing too. I mean, can you really ever have enough? We plan to use them for onion soup soon. I know French Onion Soup calls for yellow onions typically, is it going to kill us if we use sweet onions?
Tomatillos! We've had a few that we've picked but I still haven't made any salsa verde or dishes. I'm waiting for a bunch to harvest. They are coming slow and I'm actually hoping to pick some today.
I didn't shoot the rest of the garden but I will tell you it is in full bloom. The peach trees have been going nuts, my father-in-law just picked a gazillion nectarines. The other tomatoes, squash and beets are all doing so well too! I love this garden thing.
