The Year of PICKLES!!!

This year has been awesome for my garden - it's the first year I grew cucumbers. I don't know why I never planted them before.  We have been inundated with cucumbers.  So, what does one do when they have a gazillion cucumbers on the counter??  Make pickles!!

Here are some pictures of my harvest along with the pickle recipe I've been using (YUM):

2014 Garden Update!

So, this is late, but I decided to post it anyway to see how the garden progressed...

GARDENING TIP:  Never, ever work in the garden when it's wet - that means NO pruning, NO harvesting, NO fertilizing, NO walking through the garden either!  Stay out of the garden after a rain or even when their is AM dew on the garden.  Why?  Because it's a great way to spread disease/bacteria to your entire garden and lose it all!  So, enjoy your coffee/breakfast and do some other chores first thing in the morning.  Let the sun dry things out before you go out there!

Garlic Herb Zucchini Noodles & Shrimp

This recipe was amazing!  It was definitely a hit in our household - we cannot wait to have it again!
