My String Bean plants looked like they were thinning out a bit early this year. I took a closer look and saw a baby rabbit ( slightly bigger than my fist). But I got more than my share already so Im ok with sharing with them

My bunnies did more than just thin my beans, the little creeps chomped them off to one inch stalks! Not a leaf left. We were gone on vacation, and apparently they figured it out.

Not today, but about 2 weeks ago I dug the garlic. Here is 1/2 of the crop with another week of curing to go.

What I harvested this morning was eaten for breakfast; zucchini, onion, green pepper, swiss chard and 2 broccoli leaves.

Beth, that looks great! We're starting to think about our fall garden. We'll definitely be planting some onions and garlic.

Except for the Everglades tomato plant it is too hot here for anything else. Our finger lime is bearing fruit, but I don't expect any to grow to maturity.

Salad vegies and basil. Dug part of the garlic. Thinking something ratatouille-ish.

Im sure anyone who has a garden, can relate to what my kitchen looks like this time of year.

Tomatoes by every window
Whatever can be pickled or marinated , gets pickled or marinated (Cukes/ Eggplant)
Or dried ( Tomatoes in olive oil and garlic)
Or Roasted ( Peppers)

It was a busy day off the other day.
