The Columbia Falls Community Garden – Mid July

It is unbelievable how much a garden can grow in two short weeks.  Take a peek at just a few pictures of our progress.

Andrew and Lucy have a ripe tomato! Call me jealous!

OK…and they have this perfect looking little cabbage patch. Precious!!

A glimpse down my garden rows

A good looking onion!

I have so much kale…and so many kale chips to make…
Who has a great recipe for kale chips out there? I’ve tried garlic and sea salt, salt and vinegar, and sriracha.

Climb, little cukes…climb, climb!

Some hail damage on the zukes, but they are still producing like crazy. We ate zucchini boat enchiladas last night, and zuke slices sautéed in balsamic vinegar. Yum. What will it be tomorrow? Fritters?

Again, the hail upset some of the aesthetic qualities of the squash, but not the production!

 

I forgot to take pictures of the cauliflower that I planted thinking they were cabbage (I received them from a friend).  They are gorgeous–bright purple and yellow.  I will add some shots of them tomorrow.  And…since I have never eaten cauliflower, what exactly does one do with it?

I want to thank Jesse and Lauren for making some wonderful signs for the garden.  They look great! For some reason I missed taking a picture of the garlic and onion signs…sidetracked by a garden visitor.  I’ll get it posted tomorrow.

That’s all for now!
