pve veggies

Look what I have picked from my garden, some green peppers, yellow squash and red cherry tomatoes. I fear that it is coming to an end and I will miss running outside to see what surprise awaits me. Next year, I plan to do a larger garden and give each plant more room. This year I planted things a bit too close and it was hard to get in to pick and to weed. I just love the colors, the freshness and knowing that it came from my garden.

The fruits of your loving labor are right there. So is possibly a still-life illustration. :)
Happy weekend to you and your family!

Patricia a wonderful reward your garden gave you in return for all the care you gave to it. Did you share your photo with your dad?

My tomato plants look beautiful but for some reason didn't produce any tomatoes. I did get a few cuccumbers I'll share next week.
Have a golden weekend my friend. xoxo

Congratulations on your bounty!! I'm afraid I have too much shade to do a proper vegetable garden, but I do have some rosemary and it's always a thrill to run out and cut some for roast chicken!! I can imagine how fun it must be to gather an entire dinner!!!

Happy holiday weekend to you!

My parents keep a great garden. This year they did potatoes, a really yummy kind that make the BEST french fries. Oh, I can't wait to visit them to indulge! Enjoy the fruits (or veggies) of your labor!

Lauren,

we have a tall netting and I have seen deer eating down by the apple tree in the front, and bunnies too-
Still I could not be any happier with the summer garden.

Congrats nothing beat fresh from your own backyard. Enjoy!

Oh Patricia, I just love that you delight in your garden and celebrate the miracle of growth from a seed in the soil. Since moving into our present house, we've been focusing so hard on the interior that we've really missed out on our yard and garden compared to other places we've lived. Your shiny summer veggies are so inspiring! I do hope that by next summer we are able to plant a garden too. Enjoy your summer bounty!

so happy for you pve! there is nothing better than peeking under the leaves to see if there is anything there and finding beautiful veggies to pick and prepare ... and i so agree that there is a definite element of sadness knowing that the time will come when the plants tire ... or dare i say ... mr. frost will come visiting ...
enjoy enjoy the fruits of your labor!
