July Garden Harvest!

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

We are finally getting a somewhat regular harvesting from our garden. With the drought that is happening in our area a lot of our plants are dead or producing blighted veggies. The eggplant is GORGEOUS! Very excited to work with those. Tomatoes (red and orange) and peppers (yellow) are sad looking. Cucumbers are beautiful and I hope they taste as yummy as they look. This is a new variety for me. I want super sweet salad cucumbers! If you have any suggestions on them, let me know. We used the radishes already in a pot roast. (YUM!) And the little pile of green ground cherries are quickly disappearing as little hands grab them for a snack. Ground cherries are super sweet and the kids love them! They are a fun surprise added to salads too. People don’t expect them to be SO sweet.

Very nice! Those eggplants are beautiful. I've never tried putting radishes in a pot roast, but I think I will give it a try. I've always just eaten them raw with greens, peas, and beans. It will be good to have another use for them.

So nice to see what others are harvesting from their gardens! We're just now harvesting peas and are still eating fresh green salads from the garden as summer arrives late here in the Pacific NW. Hope you get the rain you need soon. :)

I like how you've styled your veggies - the colors look like a box of Crayola crayons!

Beautiful! I love a sweet cucumber too. I love this Honeydew Cucumber Salad - http://zentmrs.blogspot.com/2010/09/honeydew-cucumber-salad.html. I make mine a little spicier, but it is delicious as is!
