The Taste of Summer

Went out to the garden today and found we finally have a few larger tomatoes and an eggplant. We have been eating a few cherry tomatoes which are good but you just wait for the big ones to turn red. This summer has not been so great for the garden, to cool so it has set everything back a few weeks. The peppers really are hating it don't thinks we will get many. We also has some problems with a wood chuck, who kept getting in. He ate the cabbages, beans zucchini, and lettuce so I replanted them and they are coming along slowly.

I didn't think to get a picture of the eggplant before cutting it and breading it for eggplant parmesan. So here is the eggplant breaded and ready to fry can't wait. There are a two more within a couple of days of harvesting.

My herb are also doing well they have liked it this year, I made pesto Wednesday and still have lots of basil to use so will make up some more next week.

Hope your gardens are starting to produce.
There sure is nothing like having grown your own food.
Have a great Day!
