Giant Zucchini and Early Morning time

Every morning I get out of bed and spend about 20 min working in the garden.  Some of it is propagating new fruit, watering, and cleaning out leaves but now I spend at least a few mins checking on my fruit deciding when to pick it.  Unfortunately I have only been working on one side of the garden and totally forgot about the other side until this morning when I jumped back in surprise after finding this huge zucchini.  B and I measured it – it was 10 1/2 in long and 9 in wide.

The soft early morning light is so pretty and the bugs are at a minimum so it makes it a very therapeutic time for me before I head into work. ChickandBee-gardenharvest1

Starting to get a few cucumbers in as well.  I tied a red ribbon around where the fruit is growing so I remember to check on them.  Not sure I want a giant cucumber.

Summer Garden for 2012

Its that time of year again! I spent about two weeks planning what  to get this year.  I knew that we would have to do a lot of containers since you are suppose to rotate your crops.  I might have went a little overboard but I can’t wait until I get to fry up my first eggplant along side some squash.  Its been a few weeks since they all have been planted and already we are getting a harvest.

What we got:

  • Eggplant
  • Zucchini
  • Yellow Squash
  • Cucumber
  • Strawberry
  • 3 different kinds of Basil (lime, Greek, sweet)
  • Chives, Oregano, Lavender, Cilantro, and Parsley
  • 3 different kinds of tomato (one for pastas, a big boy variety, and a cherry)
  • 2 different kinds of peppers (green and jalapeno)
  • And a Fig Tee – for B

Lately..

Lately I have been incorporating more fresh fruit into my diet.  Like these  pancakes with blueberries.
