My first little harvest of the season...

I've planted a garden again for the first time in 3 or 4 years and I picked my first yellow squash and zucchini squash yesterday. I'm going to have a bumper crop of these so I gave several to my neighbor and brought these few in. I'm going to bake fresh zucchini bread in the morning... YUM! There are Sugar Snap Peas ready to be picked in the morning too. The brussell sprouts and cauliflower are growing, but I've never grown them before, so I'm not sure when they will be ready. I also have several varieties of beans, baking pumpkins and pickling cucumbers growing sent to me by Sue at M5D. (Thanks for sending all those seeds to me Sue!). I sure hope they grow well too. :)

So glad you did a garden - are you sorry you have been away for that long? Enjoy your harvest.

Yay - gardens are fun and I love zuchinni's - or courgettes as we call them!!
The cauliflowers are ready when they are white and firm - bend the leaves over the flower so it does not 'burn'.
Brussell sprouts are generally regarded as a winter crop here..., but once the wee sprouts are about the right size, pick them, simple
:-).
