Veggie Update

Some pictures of the kitchen garden. A lot of people have asked me about my 100% container garden. I had no idea it was such a novel concept. I'll do a post on container veggie growing soon. Until then, a few pictures of how the veggies are doing.

rraysh: really? batter and fry? the pumpkin pant has such a profusion of flowers... I have a cookbook that gives a recipe for fried squash blooms. Must try this.

fried squash blossoms are a delicacy. the baby zukes with a flower on them were selling for $8/lb! all the more reason to grow your own :)
inspiring garden, Dottie. waiting for your container garden post.

And you have a green thumb, too! **It's turn for the two-feet-tall me to turn green with envy now!**

And yeah...pumpkin flowers can be fried...preferably in batter - and they taste yum :)

kodi's mom: so I have heard. zukes with flowers at $8/lb??? they better be dipped in gold at that price :) You must try growing veggies enxt season. They are really do a lot of work themselves.

Munchkin: Come over and we'll fry some pumpkin and squash blossoms.

Mystic: Mystic, put up a post with recipe? I must must try this.

Vinita: Yes, m'am. The soil in our yard is hard clay.

Pengin: Thanks :)
