How Does Your Garden Grow? 6/29/10

This week we picked tomatoes from our garden and zucchini, summer squash and jalapenos from my Dad's garden.  Our sunflowers bloomed too!  And they are such cheerful flowers, I think we'll plant more next year.

 Our tomato bounty.  Mostly Roma and cherry tomatoes.  I think that one there is supposed to be a Beef variety, but it had a few rough places on it.  I sliced them away and it was perfect in our Summer Veggie Pasta Salad.

 Yellow Zucchini, Green Zucchini, Summer Squash and jalapenos from my Dad's vegetable garden.  He's also got some okra in bloom, so hopefully in a few weeks we'll get some and be able to fry it up.

And last but not least, our cheerful sunflowers...there's a few more fixin' to open up.  
I definitely want to plant more next year.  They are just so pretty!

I just posted my garden update today too! We lost all the squash to vine borers but have tons of yellow cherry tomatoes and even a couple of japanese eggplant!

I have lots of tomatoes as well. I love the sunflowers. The birds plant them every year for me! Happy 4th!

Wonderful veggie harvest. And I like the sunflower picture; it's so cheerful.

It is the best to grow, pick and eat veggies from your very own garden. Enjoy the 4th of July!

Oh, you'd laugh to see the size of my sunflowers (barely an inch...), but I will have them by the end of August. They always mean fall to me because of that. :-) Thanks for sharing at the TGP!

Your garden looks great, love the helpers. Also do you harvest the sunflower seed to eat? How does that work?

Candi said...

@Jenna - I've never harvested sunflower seeds before. I guess that's one of those things I can google to find out how to do it :) I do know the birds like to eat the seeds. I'll have to see what they look like when they bloom out. This is our first time planting them and I love how tall and cheerful they are :)

I saw yellow Zucchini for the first time this year...couldn't find green plants so bought and planted the yellow...It has mostly been mixed green & yellow...I've only had one or two fruit at a time so I've added it to my squash and onions...Our Okra should be ready soon too so you must live somewhere in the South.
