Let's take a walk through my vegetable garden. I know I've said before that the flowers are all the work of my mother, but I personally prefer to plant something that is going to give back something to eat - so I did. The eggplant this year have been super productive. We've already made eggplant curry and eggplant casserole.
And we've only harvested one yellow squash so far, but it was huge and, as you can see, there are a bunch on the way.
Here we have some yummy grape tomatoes...
And some yellow cherry tomatoes. I'll be making tomato jam with these in another month or so when we have more than we can easily eat.
Green beans! Basically once a week we have been able to harvest enough to serve at dinner - delic!
And I love the tendrils they send out.
I planted butternut squash (above) in between the tomato cages and the green bean trellis and it turns out they have also made good use of the trellis.
And have taken over part of the lawn as well... we're mowing around them.
Watermelon... these have also overgrown their boxes and moved into the surrounding lawn. I think in another couple months we'll be overrun.
Zucchini... these have also been way bigger than the ones you find in the store.
Arugala (nice and peppery) and, finally...
Swiss chard. Every other day or so we cut a bunch of the last two, add some of those tomatoes, and maybe some avocado and croutons for a delicious lunch salad. Great stuff. Now I'm hungry.
