Our Garden 2019: Harvesting Almost Everything

I’m here with a garden update! Here’s how the garden looked on the day we planted.

And here’s what it looks like now.

Needless to say, we’ve seen a lot of growth! We have harvested everything except eggplant and some of the bell pepper plants. They have a little more ripening to do, but the eggplant is looking great!

I’ve really been enjoying cooking with our tomatoes, jalapeños, rosemary, swiss chard, and zucchini. In fact, I just pulled a roasted pork loin out of the oven that was marinated in balsamic vinegar, tomatoes, rosemary, and jalapeños.

We’ve been trying to eat all the cucumbers, but we can’t keep up with them! I brought a box to church to share and thankfully they were all gone by the time we left 🙂

Too many cucumbers from garden

While the cucumbers, zucchini, and swiss chard have been producing for a month or so now, we’re just starting to enjoy the rest of the veggies.

It’s fun to go out to the garden each day with Sadie and Jimmy and see what’s new! It’s crazy how the vegetables seem to crop up overnight.

So, that’s where we’re at with the garden right now! Neck deep in cucumbers and loving every minute of it 🙂

    1. It has been awesome and one of the best parts of my day each time we go out to the garden! I am really shocked, too, seeing just how much it has grown since May. Seeing the pictures makes me truly realize how much it has changed!

      Having all the veggies has been great! I love sharing them. I wish we lived nearby! I’d stock you and Joshua up on veggies 🙂

      1. It’s amazing how quickly they can grow to monstrous proportions, lol! Gardens can easily overtake an area!
        Aww that would be so fun if we lived closer! We would totally love the fresh veggies! 😉

  4. Wow! This is awesome!! I just started a new blog dedicated to trying out all kinds of new hobbies and documenting the process. My most recent post is about vegetable gardening! Check it out!!
