August Garden in Pictures

by - August 26, 2013

This summer I've been terrible at posting the garden progress, and honestly, I've been terrible at harvesting the garden. Last summer I ate enough tomatoes for a lifetime, so this year I really just needed a taste. My husband has been juicing the other tomatoes I occasionally bring in, and the birds and bugs have been left with the rest. The lettuce and arugula just keeps planting itself, so I don't feel as terrible about letting it go. We have managed to freeze about a gallon of tomatillos, so we'll be set with homemade salsa verde for quite awhile. The okra finally took off, and we've been gobbling it up the only way we know how - fried!

  1. Hello! I came across your blog this evening and have really enjoyed reading some of your posts and looking at your garden. I love gardening and hope some day to have a cottage/veggie garden again.
    Right now I am in a cozy little apartment I call The Artist's Loft. I am not far from you, right over in Orange County. :)
