This morning's partial harvest!

Bella and I faithfully water the container vegetable garden every morning and harvest what needs it. There are always tomatoes of one sort of another and, of course, cucumbers. Today we added eggplant, green bell peppers, yellow squash, zucchini, and basil leaves to our basket.

I'm now making eggplant Parmesan and stuffed peppers. Lots to eat now and plenty to freeze so we can enjoy when the garden is only a memory.

Wanted to do more this year, but with knee re-replacement surgery in April and hand reconstruction surgery resulting in a cast/splint device in June, I wasn't up to the task. Look out next year!!!

Nothing tastes or looks better than home-grown produce!

Yes, Andy. I just finished making three trays of eggplant Parmesan and I saved the ends and the smallest parts of the eggplant to make ratatouille. Just used the nice big, perfectly-round slices for the casseroles. Since eggplant is usually cubed for ratatouille, I figured I'd kill two birds with one stone.

I'd planned to make stuffed peppers today, too, but it took me longer than anticipated to make the eggplant dish. Tomorrow will be stuffed pepper day.

Looks like good pickin's! And don't feel bad for the small bit of plantings - in spite of you getting your knee and hand rebuildiing projects this year, you still planted more than I did.
