Zucchini, Squash, Broccoli and Greens ~ Garden Update

Last week I gave you our garden update and let you know that we should be able to start harvesting some vegetables.  Our garden exploded and grown. Since then many of the plants have doubled in size.

We have had more Swiss Chard and Spinach than we can eat, so now our neighbors are enjoying it at as well.

I harvested our first Zucchini and Yellow Squash, they were little but I knew I better pick them because I had tons more on the plant.  Plus they are so yummy when they are small and tender!

We have also had Cilantro, Parsley, Dill, Basil, Thyme… it is really nice cooking with with them. It is amazing the difference in taste when cooking with fresh herbs!

Broccoli in the gardenOur two big heads of broccoli where ready to eat as well. Below are the side shoots of the Broccoli that grow after you cut the main stem.

I was SHOCKED to see how fast my zucchini grew …. We are eating it as fast as we can but I had to call my Mom up to “share” some with her because we have even more on the way.  Having too much produce is a good problem to have I guess 🙂

How is your garden coming along?  I would love to hear about it!
