Garden Veggies


Do you have a summer garden this year?
How is it doing?

Some things in my garden have done very well, like cucumbers
and tomatoes.  We're eating them daily...so yummy!
I think I'll try some pickles soon!
Other things just did ok...like jalapenos and zucchini.
And my bell peppers didn't do well at all...I never picked one! ha.

At least the tomatoes are great...they're our favorite anyway!
And Nugget is loving the lettuces, which are still going strong!


Don't forget the pedi party and giveaway on Friday!
I have NOT given myself a pedicure yet! 
Nothing like waiting til the last minute. lol...
Hope to see your pretty piggies then!

  11. Our cucumbers, summer squash, and watermelons look like they've given up. Too many cold nights, I guess. We're still picking tomatoes and corn, and will soon have a bumper crop of butternut squash which I think might make some mighty tasty "pumpkin" pie. :)
    Oh, and then there are those Jack-o-lanterns growing in my flower garden...

    1. I've never grown pumpkins...sounds so fun! Yes, butternut squash will make really yummy pies! Mmmmm!

    2. I left a rotting field pumpkin in my flower garden last year. Oops. :)

      Delete
    3. I always put my Halloween pumpkins in my back garden...but nothing grows!
      You surely have the green thumb, Martha!
      And...that pesky red squirrel eats it all winter!

    4. The squirrels seem to keep away here much better than before the cats adopted me. ha.

    1. I never have good luck with making pickles. I'm browsing Pinterest for a good recipe. :)

  15. Our lettuce, spinach and cucumbers have done really well, but our tomatoes are just starting to ripen. Everyone around here says that the cooler, less humid weather we've had lately has slowed down their ripening. The fresh tomatoes are what I look forward to the most!

    1. I agree...they are the best part! Nothing like grilling a burger and topping it with a garden tomato!

  16. I can take or leave the tomatoes -- I prefer cherry or grape tomatoes -- but I love cucumbers!

  17. The big ones are messier if you try to eat them as a snack. Ha.

  18. I've got a few herbs... that's good, for me!
