IT'S NOT THAT HOT 'N' HUMID ...

... So, here are some more pictures of our humble gardens. There's Big Daddy, surveying the watering of the corn garden with his enormous, industrial-strength, tripod sprinkler. Big Daddy used to water our little, suburban, .2-acre lawn with this. "If a little bit's good, a whole lot more's better."



And, neighbor Doug saunters over to assist Big Daddy in the watering surveillance.



Check out the size of our squash and cucumber plants! They're doing the best out of all the veggies, I think.



Here is one of several yellow squashes (or, is "squash" one of those words that is both plural and singular - like "deer" and "fish"?).




And look at the size of this zucchini! Can you believe I didn't even notice it until today?



I will have to show you our tomatoes and beans when I'm finished weeding them. It's a bit embarrassing to show you how woefully neglectful I've been of the weeds.


Oh, and that Ichiban eggplant? Grilled with balsamic vinegar and EVOO - thanks Mama Changa!

Wow, your garden is looking awesome! It puts my pee-wee plants to shame!

I wish I had a garden that big. It's fabulous!

I so admire those with a green thumb. If I even THINK about starting a garden I become overwhelmed with exhaustion at the thought of all the work and tending and must lye on my couch with my arm draped over my forehead waiting to be fanned.....

Our garden is waaay tiny compared to yours, and weeds, well we won't even go there!

Glad you liked the eggplant recipe, I usually throw a few spices on it for more flavor. With two little ones, easy peasy recipes are the only way to go!

I'm envious of your lovely garden. I don't have room in my suburban yard for such things.

When you're ready to harvest your various squashes, I have an excellent recipe for a fresh zucchini, squash and pepper salad that's to-die-for (and super simple).
