Good things from the garden...

As I type this, it's raining once again here in the rainforest we call the south, good for all things green. It's funny, I've been looking back at my garden posts over the last month or so, and its really come a long way. On the full size dinner plate above I've got a good haul, and this is just from five minutes in the backyard with a pair of scissors one afternoon. The jalapeƱos and banana peppers are obviously doing fine, and we're still waiting on the NM peppers, cayenne, and habanero to ripen. I haven't even mentioned the tomatoes...

This is actually an entirely different plate of veggies. About four days after I picked and photographed the plate up top, I pulled all of this out of the garden as well. The cucumber was a big surprise, I didn't even know they were getting close to being ripe, until I pulled back some of the vines to do a little pruning and found a whole bunch.


  1. Can we get a photo of you eating that whole plate of peppers? ;)

  2. Nice! We have harvested about 4 zucchini so far and I continue to trim the cilantro, basil, and chives as needed.

  3. See, I have herbs on my balcony garden, but the parsley almsot died, and the chives are not really getting large. The Organo, rosemary, tyme and sage are going nuts tho!!


  4. Cucumbers, Squash and Zucchini will sneak up on you. I have to check my garden about every other day.

  5. Next year I'm going to go nuts with the garden methinks. I'm pulling out so many peppers I think I'm going to start pickling them in preparation for football season.
