Revenge of the Veggie Garden

Help! My garden is coming to get me!

Here's a photo of today's yield from the veggie garden... apparently we need to stay on top of the zucchini harvest a little more - I shredded 3 of those snozcumbers this afternoon and got enough for 26 loaves of zucchini bread. Yikes. If they came up with a way to power vehicles with zucchini I think our little garden could keep the greater-Orem area running for weeks!

The tomatoes just started coming in, so that's exciting, and our broccoli plants are determined to keep producing over two months after the initial harvest, which suits us just fine - broccoli and cheese is a family favorite.

We have also had great success with our sunflowers this year - they are rivaling the zucchini for the garden's grand prize! We're going to have some happy birds this winter... and maybe even a few happy Morningstar tummies if we figure out how to roast the seeds. A new adventure!

Gotta go - time to get 2 more loaves of zucchini bread in the oven :)

Now that's what you call a sunflower!!!!! I planted Sunflowers this year & only one came up. I don't know what happened to the rest. It looks like I may need to get a few tips from you!!!!
