Fresh from the Garden

Sweet sugar baby watermelons...this is the first year for these dainty beauties. Let me just say..I love them.
Fiery cayenne peppers for hot pepper butter, pepper relish and setting aside for later.
Crispy crunchy cucumbers for creamy cucumber salad..perfect for cooling off on a hot day.
Loads of yellow pear and pink lady tomatoes...cooked up for sauces.
Loads of juicy sweet corn (slathered in butter and dripping down the chin..yum).
 The tea and herb garden brings in the flutter of beautiful wings..every color and pattern imaginable.

What's in your garden today?

My garden is like an overgrown jungle. My gourds and pumpkins have been growing like crazy in this heat. Blessings from Wisconsin.

Thank you, ladies...I have to say, the watermelon vines are definitely plotting a takeover!

Our tomatoes are still green. I wonder why but we did get some beans, broccoli, Swiss chard and lettuce! Your food looks yummy.
