A tisket ... a tasket... a huge big basket!

This is the harvest from yesterday! Everything in this basket I pulled out of our ever growing 'farm' when I wandered out there before anyone else was up.

The basket, I just got from Goodwill on Friday for $3.99. It's huge and just what we need cos all this stuff weighs a pretty ton, most especially the spaghetti squash. I will probably be handing a lot of this out to our neighbors as we still have zucchini, cucumbers and spaghetti squash to cook from earlier last week.

Today I made some zucchini bread (hubby's favorite) which I'll post about tomorrow on my daily blog and feature also in my cooking blog with the recipe and pictures.

Things continue to grow well for us, and we're getting ready to plant more seeds for the Fall season. There are different veggies we can grow in the cooler months, like broccoli, onions, lettuce and peas. These don't do well in the hot summer months and we didn't get a chance to plant any in the early spring so I'm looking forward to trying them soon.

I'll leave you with a 'birds-eye' view of our 'little farm' taken from the upstairs game room last week. My daily blog will let you know when I update in here. It may only be once or twice a week.

Oh Denise! I'm so jealous of your garden and wonderful produce :) I so much prefer homegrown tomatoes and vegetables and go to the Farmer's Market as often as I can.

WOW! What a great use of space and a beautiful garden. Ours got beat up by the FL weather this year so I'm having a little garden envy.. LOL
