Monday Garden Club

Get your gardening gloves and knee pads ready. It's time for another installment of Monday Garden Club.

My garden is going crazy! Crazy in a good way, but still crazy.

In the past we
ek I have harvested 6 huge heads of broccoli. We ate some raw, I blanched and froze enough for 3 meals to be named later and I made several big batches of broccoli cheese soup and froze those as well. Recipe tomorrow!
Binny harvested the first cherry tomatomore summer squash
garden salad
I thought I planted sugar snap peas (because that's what I always plant) but apparently I planted snow peas instead. Normally I would be upset by such a surprise, but actually it kind of worked out for me because our neighbors had given us tons of sugar snap peas a few weeks ago.

And what crazy garden is complete without sunflowers? Not mine!

Now for all you gardeners out there who wish to participate, either leave a comment on what's growing in your yard, or post a Monday Garden Club update on your blog. Don't forget to drop your link in the comments, I'll add you to this post.

HOLY CRAP on the broccoli! OMG, that's sooooooo huge! I hope my broccoli ends up like that! (my one remaining plant that is, lol)

Riot Kitty said...

Seriously, that is the biggest broccoli I have ever seen! But then again, size matters ;)

I want to come have garden salad at your house!

Wow! Looks great. We're struggling up here in northern Michigan but I did get some snow peas this weekend. I'll have a post later today!

Happy Gardening!

Wow! Your garden totally rocks! The broccoli looks like it's on steroids. So cool!

I still can't believe the success of my very first garden.
