Well, ours grew pretty well until about 1 week ago. We kind of need some rain, don't ya think?
Our corn didn't do well at all this year. I have been buying it from a local market on the way home from work. Yum yum. In fact we might have some tonight with supper depending on how well Joe is feeling. He has had a stomach bug for a few days now.
I did however, manage to get some more goodies from the sad sad garden.
Isn't that just the most colorful picture? It's times like this, when I took this picture, that I am very thankful I have no close neighbors. Can you imagine seeing a woman standing on the back of a golf cart taking pictures?
I took the squash and cut it in long spears, mixed them in a batch of Olive Oil, salt, pepper and stirred them around to pick up all the goodness of the mixture then put them in a foil pouch. To that pouch I added 3 tabs of butter, sealed it and Joe grilled it next to some marinated chicken breasts. Oh My! Talk about goooooooood. Thankfully I had enough to bring to work today and I swear it was better today than last night. There is just something so cool about going out to the garden, picking some vegetables and eating them the same day. I also made cucumber and onion salad. No one else in my family eats cucumber or onion so I have it all to myself!
How many of you fine folks put a garden out each year?
