Garden report July


Pears are getting big. Garden is very wild and green as we haven't really had time to catch up with it after our Mallorca vacation...

Zucchini here, zucchini there. We have zucchinis everywhere. Big ones, small ones, shiny and big at times. We have grated zucchini, sauteed zucchini, in pancakes zucchini, gratin zucchinis, oven baked zucchinis and just raw in salad zucchinis... And we still have more zucchinis to harvest...

Carrots big and beautiful. Potatoes just as great. Emmy luuuuuuves to help out in the garden, dig, pull, clean and later cook.  And I am so proud to have children who actually knows where their food comes from. Proud as a parent for giving my kids the knowledge about how to grow vegetables and fruit.

Happy to be married to a professional cook who teaches our kids about cooking and caring for what type of food we eat. Healthy living and healthy habits. Especially after watching Jamie Oliver's show Food Revolution  (the link is only an example of many other chocking YouTube clips from this show...) that even got us questioning certain food purchases and choices that we make at times... I just feel very lucky when I look at my own garden...





Corn growing tall and starting to give fruit (and Jay's niece Alex is out here taking photos with me as well...).

Many many yummy tomatoes... Which I like to celebrate with a favorite poem I wrote a couple of years ago when we did our first year of gardening.

Life is good. Garden is fruitful. I am excited!

  5. Gorgeous. When I think of our tiny little garden< that isn't doing well this year, I'm very jealous. Jealous of the professional cook husband too. HeeHee.
