A Video Tour of What’s Growing in Our Garden

Vegetable gardens are always works in progress.  Experiments.  I’ve found it helpful to hear how other people’s experiments are going – what’s thriving and what’s not – so that I  can add those lessons learned to my own and hopefully produce more food for our table.  In an effort of sharing, here’s the current state of my garden.

Now Eating

  • Lettuce
  • Spinach
  • Carrots
  • Summer Squash
  • Banana Peppers
  • Jalapeño Peppers
  • Strawberries (although most are going to the bugs)
  • Basil

coming soon

  • Delicata Squash
  • Cucumbers
  • Tomatoes (grape and cherry)
  • Bell Peppers
  • Blackberries

a ways off

  • Green Beans
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Butternut Squash
  • Spaghetti Squash
  • Acorn Squash
  • Raspberries

Done for the season

  • Kale (thanks to a mob of caterpillars)

We were fortunate to have such luck with kale, spinach, and lettuce early this season to have salads almost every day (something that thankfully Jared and Little Guy enjoyed and didn’t get tired of).  It seems we are just around the corner from switching from salads to squash and tomatoes, and I’m feeling the need to expand my recipe repertoire of soups and sauces.

What’s growing in your vegetable garden?  Anyone have tomato or squash recipes to share?
