The Other Thing I Came Home To

It's amazing what a garden can do in 10 days.... When I left, there was barely a ripe tomato to be had and I had to buy some to make the greek salad we had while camping. And the zucchinis were only a couple of inches long so I couldn't take one to roast on the fire the way we like. And there was only 1 cucumber ready to pick.....

And then when we came home, it was over flowing with produce. The zucchinis were gigantic. there were 4 sugar pumpkins ready and there were so many cucumbers, I have enough to make relish. And you can see the basket of tomatoes there.... I love this time of year when we start to really harvest the garden and we can eat all week from it.



Here is one of my favourite harvest meals - stuffed zucchini and greek salad - almost everything from our own garden - a feast! And tonight I am trying this recipe. Yum!

And there is even more than we can eat. Here is the first batch of pickles that I have ever made. Hope they are good!
