Today's harvest

I thought it would be fun to have a thread where we post a description and/or picture of what we've harvested from our gardens. I know CWS will blow us all out of the water but I'd like to see what people are growing.

What do you all think? Mods, could we make it a sticky?

Here's what I harvested today. There's lots more out there. I'm waiting for some more bell peppers to finish turning red, and there are some tomatoes that I need DH to reach. I have some preserving to do now!

That's beautiful GG. I wish I had a harvest to show, but I did just run across this recipe that looks good for all you gardeners. I think I'll head to a farmers market to make this...
Summer Vegetable Pie

Read the notes at the bottom of the recipe.

Good idea GG. and perfect recipe for this column Kayelle.
I too wish I had a harvest to show-- no camera and I am cell phone challenged.

But that hasn't stopped me from freezing green beans and now I have started making pesto. There is lots of basil. I should snip some sage, oregano, and mint et al to dry while they are at their peak. I planted just two cucumbers, so we are keeping up with them. It will be awhile before tomatoes are ripe.

Garrison Keillor says July is the only time of year when people lock their cars in the church parking lot, so people don't put bags of zucchini on the front seat to give away..

Thanks, Kayelle! Offering yummy recipes is a great way to contribute.

Whiska, that's why I said descriptions and/or pix. I know some people have issues with posting images. I'd still like to hear about what people have and what they're doing with the bounty

Looks good, GG! Kay, that veggie pie recipe looks delicious!

As of early this morning, this is what's left of my little container garden harvest. I thought everything was done, but these little guys were hanging on, and the pots are now retired until next spring. I'm not much of a gardener at all, I don't have the room - but I do like playing around with growing things.

Thanks Cheryl! My consolation, it's all I get this year considering the bunnies got all my green bean plants!
