Something from the Garden

How in the world do zucchini grow so fast?? One day they're little and manageable and a couple days later they're HUGE! This is one of the examples of what has been happening with our zucchini. A couple days of rain and we go out to harvest and find zucchini weighing about 12 pounds. Lucky for us a sweet Hungarian man at the food bank LOVES these HUGE zucchinis. He smiles and his face lights up when he sees us arrive. I guess there's a Hungarian soup he makes with them.
We've been blessed with a plentiful garden this summer. Right now I'm harvesting broccoli, beans, cabbage, beets, onions, carrots, tomatoes, zucchini, yellow summer squash, acorn squash, patty pan squash, hubbard squash and butternut squash. There are even some raspberries still on the vines. So yummy!
The flowers in the photo are also from the garden. I would love to have year round flower bouquets from the garden, but right now it's mostly during the summer months.
