garden 6/18/11

There are treasures in the garden! My favorite kind too - zucchini. :D

Ha. This photo makes it look like everything is blending in. However, the stakes and cages on the left are because the tomatoes are getting bigger. 

Cucumbers! They look a little different than last year. More prickly than I'd like, but we'll see.

Mini toms!


Here's a zuch.

And here's some baby yellow sqaush.

Watermelon vines.

Cooked this for lunch.

The garden is LUSH! It's also very hot, so the lettuce is a bit bitter. Not great for salads unfortunately. :( But, still nice in a sandwich.

looks like we needed to mow the grass... ;)

all the lettuce!

broccoli rabe

This was fun. We'd never made them before. We grew them in the garden, so we were pretty excited to finally have a taste.
We lightly sautéed them and ate them just like any other traditional leafy green. :)
