Summer Bounty

A simple summer salad made from the bounty of our garden. Well, it may not be a huge bounty, but it sure does taste good. There is something so incredibly satisfying about being able to walk out into the garden and pluck peppers, tomatoes, and cucumbers right off the plants. In less than five minutes you can be sitting down to a wonderfully simple salad that is still warm from the sun. This was the first year we grew peppers and cucumbers and they will definitely be back next year. I’m also looking forward to growing some different veg as well. Slowly but surely our garden is expanding and it is so much fun. The kids love being able to pick veg, but they are really excited about the cantaloupe. Right now it’s about the size of a softball and growing a bit every day. What bounty are you enjoying from the garden (or the shops)?

  2. That looks wonderful – and I like the thought of sunshine …. I could see my breath this morning, it was so chilly when I went for my walk!!

  3. That looks beautiful. There is nothing more satisfying than growing your own food.

  4. My family is enjoying zucchini, tomatoes, acorn squash(just me) and lacinato kale from our garden.
