Summer is fast approaching. How are your gardens growing?? I wanted to update you with some pics of mine.
Everything is growing so fast! Check out the cauliflower. I see a cauliflower dish in my near future
There are probably 300 tomatoes growing so far…. let me know if you want some!
And all the lettuce has come up beautifully! I've been eating it almost everyday the past week.
The other items in the garden are pumpkins, zucchini, cucumber, green beans, rainbow swiss chard, red beets, golden beets, heirloom carrots, leeks and eggplant.

Oh, the difference between L.A. and the Adirondacks — I’m just starting mine next week. I bought a ton of tomato plants and they all died because of an unusual frost one very cold night.
Great shots! Who needs meat when you can partake of such fine fruits and vegetables?
What a beautiful garden! I can’t keep anything alive. But I just blame it on the squirrels, claiming they dig up anything I plant 😉 Btw, love those tomatoes! There is nothing like fresh tomatoes from the garden.
I want tomatoes!
Great garden! I’m trying to plant one of my own but I would like to go with organic plants. I’ve been told that I will encounter a lot of issues with bugs / rodents. Are you having any of these issues? If so, is there anything you can suggest to help keep the critters away with having to use pesticides? Thanks! I love all your recipes / blogs!!
Thanks Brittany! Luckily so far I haven’t had too much trouble with rodents. I have dealt with cut worms and caterpillars. I am not a fan of pesticides either, it’s why I’m growing my own food in the first place. It sounds tedious and horrible, but I found the best way to get rid of them naturally is to comb over all the plants everyday and discard any I find… I also place cedar chips around all the plants. It’s suppose to help keep bugs away.
I know a lot of people on the east coast have to deal with deer and I believe planting marigolds around the garden can help.
Thank you for all your help and comments. I love your blog and recipes. I’m fairly new to the cooking “whole food” meals and find your recipes very simple to follow with great pictures. Thanks for all your advice and posts!!
