My garden has been showcased!

One of the most wonderful things about our summer garden has been literally watching the fruits of our labor grow into delicious foods that we have been savoring on a daily basis.

The next best thing is the feeling I get when others admire it, as well.

Stephanie of Sand and Starfish has a weekly segment on her lovely beach-themed blog showcasing various types of gardens.

She recently contacted me and asked if she could feature my little garden this week...of course, I was honored and all too thrilled to share it with Stephanie and her readers.

You can read about it and see my most recent garden pictures HERE.

She and I both love to see how other gardens grow...in fact, she posted pictures of her broccoli plants not too long ago, which have grown far more than ours have. Garrett, our mini broccoli lover, was impressed!

If you have a garden that you would like Stephanie to feature, feel free to contact her through her blog.

Oh, and if you're in need of recipes that will bring out the best flavors of your fruits and veggies, visit Jenna of The Newlyweds (my gardening mentor)! She features mouth-watering recipes each week on her blog that you'll definitely want to try.

We made Jenna's zucchini cakes with a couple zucchinis from the garden a few days ago and they were delicious...and easy to make! I paired them up with some homemade buttermilk ranch dressing and they were a huge hit!

Hope everyone had a wonderful and safe 4th of July!!

I think your garden is awesome! I am still totally impressed by your green thumb! Any plant that comes near me gets a death sentence! :)

Your garden is wonderful, I just love how involved the kiddo's are. I hope mine with get more into it as they get older, for now they do love to pick the garden, ripe or not, lol.

Thanks for mentioning me, your so sweet. Glad y'all liked the zucchini cakes.

That is so much fun!

One day, hopefully, I'll have a place with space for a garden. For now, I have to settle for buying overpriced, days old produce from the grocery store.

Okay, I'm saying this in a good way but I'm jealous! I miss having a garden and yours is beautiful!!

Rebecca said...

Yay for you!! My garden is the saddest little thing you've ever seen, but at least I'm trying! I'll check out her blog!

Congrats! Your garden looks amazing. Again, jealous that you can do that stuff - ours would be eaten by wild animals in a heartbeat!

How fun is that? Congrats!

I have a garden of weeds - does that count? They're pretty, if that makes a difference.

Erin said...

I am equally jealous of your gardening...I want one just like it. Only I have a brown thumb. My tomato plants haven't produced anything yet this summer. The only thing I seem capable of growing is herbs....sigh.

Awesome! Off to check it out!! :)

I figure that if the children are alive when my husband gets home at the end of the day, I've done my job.
