1st harvest of the season!

Woo hoo!!! Our first harvest. It was time to trim back our basil and dill, plus a huge pile of beautiful swiss chard! Here are some pics of the garden…

We found a bunch of tires at an estate sale and have placed them around the back yard to house our herbs. The picture above is a few cucumber plants.


Here’s a shot of the whole garden area. On the right is the Swiss chard, in the back are some tomatoes. You can see the broccoli on the back left side. In the very front is a zucchini and in between the broccoli and zucchini are peppers: red and green bells, poblano, and jalapeno.


Can’t wait till our cucumber plant give us some presents to pickle with the dill!


I feel a batch of pesto coming our way, soon!


Here’s the harvest in the King Soopers basket that BJ stole…turns out it’ works perfect as a harvesting bucket šŸ™‚


Tomorrow night is a zucchini and swiss chard tart…yummm, will post soon!
