Garden Gone Wild!

This is the time of year when I start to think that maybe I overcrowded my garden in the spring.  Everything has gone cra-Z in our little garden!  I think I have enough plants stuffed in there for a garden three times as big.  Sigh.  I pulled my first whopper of a zucchini out of the patch yesterday.  I think its a three pounder, I'll have to weigh it.  Too big to cook with, I'll have to grate it and bake with all it's zucchini goodness.  Don't tell the kids, but there will be zucchini in the chocolate cake I make tomorrow for our Sunday dinner!  The pole beans are still flowering, but I think I can start picking from the lower levels soon.  We had our first batch of yellow beans for dinner on Monday, they were so delicious.  The raspberries are still plentiful, which is a delicious treat.  Gardening is always an amazing experience.  Next week I'm going to share some of the things that went wrong in our vegetable patch this year.  There's always a failure or two every year, and it's a chance to learn something new.

  1. Your garden looks fantastic! I made muffins during the week full of zucchini, carrot and apple. The kids love them.
