Garden foods

The garden is still going strong, but so are the weeds. We have been pretty busy the last few weekends, with the BBQ and my trip to Texas the week before that. It is a relentless battle, but the booty is well worth it. We are transitioning from more spring-type veggies (lettuce, broccoli) to more summer time goodies (carrots, squash, cukes). We got our tomatoes and peppers in a little late, so they are still a month or so off.

We have enjoyed lots of meals lately that were almost entirely grown here at home. Check out the garden veggies getting ready to be roasted and all the glories of pizza night.

Green garlic. Yum.
