Food from my Garden

This is the 2nd bunch of squash I’ve gathered. Meet Quasi-mato. He’s a happy little tomato with a hump. Quasi-mato is hanging out on my window sill in hope that his hump will ripen. Later this week I’ll have a squash casserole recipe for you. It’s vegetarian friendly, but not a vegan recipe.

Garden Gab, weeks 5 and 6

Pictures from my growing garden. Flowering bean plants. Lettuce. My 5 tomato plants. I’m growing corn, well corn stalks. Beets, peppers and (I think) watermelons. I did not plant lettuce there.
