Looks like the makings for a lovely veggie lasagna and potato pancakes! Yum!

Oh, very nice. I pulled all the onions today, just before the skies opened up again, but didn't get to the last of the garlic or today's round of berry picking.

I like Cathy's idea of a vege lasagna! That sounds delicious :)
Makes my haul out of the garden look a little weak at the moment lol. I have left an award for you on my blog - drop by!

Thanks, Naomi

Yummy like the look of that real dirt!!Or how about veggie bake with the potatoes grated on top with cheese (au gratin).Must get something to eat I'm getting hungry.Actually I've always found potatoes need a few days to sit or they take forever to cook.

Oh, the envy! Our garden is done. Tanked. On the other hand, our second season starts in a few weeks. I just hate the waiting in between. This is like winter for us.

I love it. I just took a strikingly similar photo tonight at my place. I don't have any yellow squash, but mine has a bunch of little green beans and the first 2 eggplants of the season. Hooray! I finally caught some zucchini that's small enough to eat, rather than grate into baked goods. I've been making a ton of muffins...

Mmm, the taters look wonderful! Last night I picked some green beans in hopes for summer stirfry. The peppers and tomatoes are coming in great as well. The bell peppers are about the size of a baseball. Almost there!

I was away for just a few days- and can't believe the updates I've missed...checking back into your blog makes me feel like I've missed two weeks! Lots going on...
I also back tracked and added a recipe for tortelli salad that uses not only zucchini, but yellow squash, scallions, peppers & basil from the garden. Enjoy!

awwww, nice apron full! Sadly, we have roasted off the face of the earth here in South Texas. I will hoe down the last vestiges of my burnt garden this weekend. Before the sun comes all the way up and sends it over 100 degrees again.

What a wonderful haul! We have a small garden in the back yard and just enjoyed the fruits of my husband's labor; a fresh tomato, cucumber and onion salad for dinner. It was wonderful.

I love the taste of a fresh picked tomato - warm from the sun.

You asked why some of us read your blog. I read it because I long for a cabin by a lake and the beautiful solitude it can bring. I'm not such a purist that I wouldn't have a tv or a phone but I think I know the time and place for those things. I'd love to sit out on the porch of an evening, listening to the crickets and frogs, watching the fireflies and barn swallows take over the night.

It's just a romance I have.....

I am reading Jenn's book right now. I have tried vegetable and flower gardening. I have enough room in my backyard, but I have a huge problem. I live in a nice neighborhood in a small city, and the woman next door feeds the squirrels peanuts, and they come over to our yard and reek havoc. They destroy everything, the flowers, the lawn, the bark on the trees, and I didn't even try to plant vegetables this year. I talked to the woman, but she won't listen; she says they are "so cute." I tried hot pepper sprays, marigolds, and a special high frequency sound machine that doesn't cover enough area. I am desperate for some advise. I would put up a fence around a garden, if I could be sure it would keep them out. I love the idea of container gardening, but they would invade the porch too. All I can have are hanging plants. I am considering hanging tomatoes, but want to grow more than that. Any advise, anyone?

Suz - I don't have much experience with squirrels and gardens, but could you put a fence of very small-holed wire around your garden and then cover the top with bird netting? Would that keep them out?

I'm suddenly in panic mode, myself. I just spent some time looking at the calendar, and reviewing my fall garden plan and I suddenly realized that I need to start it NOW. Immediately. This weekend. The beginning of my "gardening season" has gotten away from me again!

Thank you, Tara. It's worth a try! Good luck with your fall garden!
