Check out Summer Straight from the Garden
For the past three summers, I have had a vegetable garden growing in my own backyard. I loved the whole process (minus the weeding).
Planting the seedlings.
Watching the plants grow.
Seeing “baby” vegetables emerge.
Picking that first ripe tomato off the vine.
Being amazed at the huge zucchini that you swear grew overnight.
Feeling satisfaction from cooking that first meal with picked vegetables.
Needless to say, it’s the best! This summer I decided not to grow a garden, and I have to say – I miss it. I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to keep up with it because of the girls, but I am already looking forward to next summer’s garden.
Above you’ll find a slideshow of 12 different recipes that can be made with ingredients straight from your vegetable garden (or farmer’s market…. or grocery store… you can make them regardless of where you get your ingredients!). I am so looking forward to trying all of them out. Enjoy!
