We live in zone 6a and I have been gardening and cooking for years. This blog is an opportunity for me to share with you my success and those failures that come about on occasion. Plus, I want to hear from all the gardeners and bakers and cooks out there and learn from you. Feel free to share your ideas.

Random Pics From The Garden

I thought you would enjoy pictures of the harvest and what I am currently growing for fall.

Lots of garlic and tomatoes have been harvested.

I should have a bumper crop of eggplant.

These beans were planted a couple of weeks ago and are my third crop.


Basil and this is the second crop.

Lemon on my Meyer lemon tree. I will probably only get 2 lemons this winter. Last year I harvested 11.

 Cucumber are just coming in.

 The third planting of basil. I plan to freeze lots of pesto.

I just planted chard, kale, a second crop of carrots, lettuce and radishes for fall.


  1. You have a beautiful garden! The garlic looks awesome. So jealous! I wish I had enough sun to have a garden.

    1. I have to tell you that garlic from the garden is so much better than store bought.

  2. Beautiful harvest and very lovely pictures of the garden.

  3. Great harvest. Those eggplants look awesome. And thanks for the reminder to get my garlic in (southern hemisphere garden we are just coming up to spring). Sharon's Patch

  4. You can never have too many photos of tomatoes!
