A garden is the best alternative therapy.

Vegetable Harvest

The vegetable garden is doing very well.  I am really pleased that I decided to put it on the opposite side of the house this year.  The amount of sunlight on that side makes all the difference.  This weekend, I harvested another couple of zucchini, a few squash and a few cucumbers.  I grilled the zucchini and squash with some fresh herbs, lemon juice, olive oil and salt.  The cucumbers were sliced and added to a spinach salad with balsamic vinaigrette, candied pecans, grapes and carrots.   Here’s what I picked off on Sunday:

The rest of the vegetable garden is coming along nicely.  I have over a couple dozen tomatoes forming, and lots of bell peppers, habaneros and jalapenos as well.

The cantaloupe is really taking to the trellis I built a few weeks ago.  I already have a few fruit starting to form, too!

  1. Your garden is looking great. I went out last night and a lot of my peppers are forming nicely and will be picking some this weekend to make salsa (attempt) or pico de galla. My tomatoes are coming up as well, not ready yet, but can’t wait. I think next year I will work harder at growing melons. I waited late to start the seed and only one plant lived and it is quite small and am not sure if will produce (it is a watermelon that forms small melons personal size). I really like your trellis. Good luck this year the weather is already crazy.
