Watching Food Grow is Exciting

Call me crazy, but I really get a kick out of seeing food grow. It's truly satisfying.....and almost a miracle at the same time. I love it.

I'm picking zucchini squash already. 3 yesterday. 3 tonight for dinner. Yeah, I pick them super tiny. Hubby hates squash, but for some reason baby gourmet-size is ok. So I pick them either while the blossom is still on or is just falling off. If that what it takes to get him to eat veggies, I don't object. 

The succotash limas are producing pods already. Let's hope that there are little limas inside them. Right now they are too small to tell. 

The greenhouse tomatoes aren't flowering yet. Those tomatoes pictured above came from a wild volunteer growing in one of my driveway gardens. 

So dinner tonight was a one pot pork stew, using our own onions, tomatoes, squash, potatoes, plus some carrots and green beans from Matt's garden. Yum. Homegrown food!

  1. I'm with you on loving to watch food grow. Picking zucchini small is a good idea since you'll probably get a ton of them. Less to deal with! lol
