City Girl Goes Country (Part 10) – Look what we grew!

Friday, July 05, 2013

Now what do I do with it? No problem - SP provided me with several options.

I roasted some of the zucchini and squash – very easy and very good.
I’ll steam the wax beans tonight and the peppers are a staple in my baked omelet.

Oops, I forgot about the cucumbers. They were already in the salad when I decided to document my success.

DH’s fence is doing its job and our local wildlife must be content munching on our neighbor’s lawn.

  Looks delicious! I don't have a fence, so the squirrels usually get everything I try to grow (except they seem to leave the herbs alone). But I get my veggies at the Farmer's Market. Try squash croquettes sometime - SO good, even my kids will eat them. Nothing like fresh vegetables.

    Your fresh veggies look absolutely amazing!!! I know they taste great, as my parents bring me fresh veggies from their garden. Roasting the veggies is great, and the taste is amazing, but you can also grill them. I have a grill that I can use on my stove top, and man oh man, just to see the grill marks is so fantastic!!! All I do is spray with a bit of vegetable oil, and grill away. It doesn't take very long, and yum, yum!!!

Keep on growing those veggies, as it's the best thing for our bodies!!! emoticon

on growing your own produce!!!

Be blessed,

    Two ways this city girl uses zucchini from the farmers market:
1. chopped up and sauteed with onion and scrambled eggs
2. sliced in half lengthwise and baked with salmon

Congrats! I never grew anything in my life! The things I plant always die but fortunately where I live something else comes along and grows without asking. Seriously. I have uninvited but warmly welcomed orange tree, 2 palm trees, nastursiums, and I think it's called lantana.

    Awesome! Zucchini bread is good, and there's always the neighbors' mailbox for any excess.

    Nice harvest. MMM love squash, cucumber and beans. The salad looks yummy too.
I picked a zucchini with one of my granddaughters yesterday and we threw it on the grill. MMM.
Glad the fence is working. I found squirrels gnawing on my cabbage a month or so ago. I don't share very well.

    I love fresh produce. It tastes so much better. Zucchini is good if you cut it into circles, then dip it into eggbeater and then shake it with parmesean...Then roast it..makes good chips.

Great job on your garden.

    Impressive! The rains may bring flooding, but it looks like the wetness was good to your garden!

    All those veggies look wonderful! Especially like the cucumbers. And aren't the rabbits bad this year? The tops of our plants keep getting nibbled off--argh. emoticon
