The Garden

We have been in Arizona for a reunion and just got back.  I LOVE to run check out my garden when I have been gone.  It seems like it grows so fast when I'm not peeking out at it every second.  The kids came out to help me harvest what was ripe.  After we gathered our pile of peppers, tomatoes, squash, beans, and tomatillos I couldn't resist sending in one of the kids for my camera.


Mom sent home a bag of tomatoes when we stopped in to see her last night.  SOOO with all these tomatoes from my garden, mixed with moms and the ones in the fridge before the trip, it looks like I will be doing a little canning.  I just LOVE gardening!  I love being able to go outside and bring in something for my family to eat.  Before we left one our trip I made one of my favorite salsa recipes using my own onions, cilantro, tomatoes and peppers.  I also made a yummy tortellini soup with some of OUR vegetables. 

Once again I have to say I LOVE to garden!

I love when we bring food in from the garden!! Would you be willing to share your salsa recipe? My hubs was wanting to make salsa with our harvest but I don't have a recipe for it.

I absolutely agree! I love gardening, and the fresh produce. I have decided the hardest part about gardening is when winter comes, and you have to start putting up with grocery store produce again. Your garden looks great!

I love fresh produce you've grown yourself. Somehow it always tastes better. I would love your salsa and soup recipe too if you are willing to share. I love love love fresh salsa.
