My Garden 2012 - Wordless Wednesday

Green Peppers, Jalapeno Peppers, and
Cherry Tomatoes
(Digital Images; Text and Photographs, Copyright (c) 2012 Cynthia Shenette) I was hoping to blog more over the summer, but as you can see I've been a bit busy. Right now I'm up to my eyeballs in peppers and cherry tomatoes!  Thank goodness the zucchini and cucumbers are done.  I love fresh veggies, but why do they all have to come at once?  We are eating cherry tomatoes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!

This past weekend I spent two days canning with my mother-in-law (whose in her eighth decade I might add), and she helped me can pepper relish and make pickled jalapenos and jalapeno jam.  She also made enough stuffed peppers to fill an entire turkey roaster pan!  I honestly don't know what I would have done without her.  I still have lots of peppers coming, so if you have any good recipes that use peppers (or cherry tomatoes) I'd love to hear from you!

What a beautiful garden! Wish you could pass me some of those extra cherry tomatoes and peppers through the computer!

Cynthia Shenette said...

Kristin - Thank you! I wish I could pass some along to you as well. My neighbors are starting to run when they see me coming... ;)

The vegies are terrific, the zinnias are beautiful, but what really caught my attention was the raised beds! What a lovely neat clean garden! WOW, I am very impressed, your garden makes me hang my head in shame.

Carol - Thank you! I will admit I love the raised beds, too. The garden is kind of a making lemonade out of lemons thing. We had grubs in that section of lawn so we got rid of the lawn and put in a garden with mulch and raised beds instead!
