Tuesday Garden Party #8

This is my entire garden, minus the blueberry bushes.  It has finally taken off, however I found squash borers in my yellow squash and one of my zuchinni plant today.  YUGH!!!!  I thought I had those taken care of.....apparently not!

These beautiful banana peppers will be either in my salad or on my pizza tonight.

My cucumbers are coming right along.  We had 2 inches of rain in the past 2 days and these babies are GROWING.  I just might have one to eat by Saturday.

Aren't these just lovely??

Most of this basil (this is acutally 3 plants that have grown together) will be pesto, happily living in my freezer, by the end of the week.


I harvested most of my jalapenos last week to make salsa.  I have  this guys and a couple of others that are much smaller.  I need them to get bigger so I can make some pepper jelly.

To see some more awesome and inspiring gardens, visit Jami's Tuesday Garden Party at An Oregon Cottage.

  7. I'm interested in your salsa recipe. I make and can salsa from the tomatoes in our garden. Perhaps we could trade recipes.
