Garden Goodies-Full Disclosure

My husband read my last garden post and was a little disappointed that I did not share some more of the successes we have had from our yard.

So, here are some photos of the things we have enjoyed.

Carrots from the garden
We had a few carrots hidden in the flower garden. I don’t remember planting them but there they were when I went to do my weeding. Bonus!

We have been having fresh bruschetta with tomatoes and basil from the garden. I love it with pita chips.

Tomato Plant
Our tomatoes are slow going this year but there have been a few to enjoy with the promise of more to come.

Cherry Tomatoes
These have been good performers from the deck container garden. I really wish I liked cherry tomatoes more but my husband eats them like candy.

The blackberries are coming regularly now and every time I do the watering I eat a handful. I mixed these in with some peaches and made a blackberry/peach cobbler….talk about yum.

Okay now my husband will be happy. He also says to say that we have had figs by the bagful from our tree, so many we have had to share them with our neighbors. There are a few apples, loads of purple plums, seedless grapes, and a full crop of walnuts to come later in the season.

I also remembered that we already dried oregano and dill from the garden. We also have had quite a few onions and I am ready to pull up another round this week to dry and store in the pantry.

He is going to keep me completely honest…thanks honey.

  1. I am with your husband on the cherry tomatoes. I love to eat them fresh off the vine by the handful. Yummy goodness!

  2. Thanks for the reminder about making bruschetta! Our tomatoes should be ripening in the next couple of weeks and the basil is going crazy … I was going to make some salsa with the tomatoes … but bruschetta sounds so yummy! Love the idea about the pita chips, too.

  3. That is a lot of wonderful fruits and vegetables! My husband and I have been enjoying our evenings together weeding our 2 little vegetable patches and collecting whatever is ripe. Makes us want to have more room for more plants!

  4. I am so glad you shared the positives. That really is what matters. Our garden has been a bit peevish this summer as well and with a large and eager family, I’ll not be putting anything up. But that’s OK. I’ll delight in my “wins” as you delight in yours.

    Your photographs are very enjoyable.

  5. I love cherry tomatoes but I can’t seem to get them to grow here. I have a very small garden but am hoping with fall it will grow too. I do have a question – how do you dry your herbs?

  6. Barb, I am so jealous! I have wanted a garden for so long but where we live is not really conducive to that at this time. I do have a fig tree that is producing figs for the first time – it’s about 3 or 4 years old. Everything you posted looks so deliciously yummy! It made my mouth water. Y’all did good!

  7. Ooooh, I’m so jealous! Our blackberries have not done well for some reason.

    But, I shouldn’t complain because we have lots of wonderful, sweet cherry tomatoes, and our herbs are going crazy! I need to cook some dishes that take tons of sage and thyme!
