Heirloom Tomatoes and Other Garden Goodies

I love this time of year. All summer, I sit patiently and wait for everything I planted to grow and ripen. I started out with a garden of green and little by little the colours change and for the past few weeks we have been enjoying garden perfect vegetables and potatoes.

We’ve had a wet summer. There have been some nice, hot days, but we’ve had more rain then we needed this year. Our peas and cucumbers are done and we just harvested our beans. I wanted to share some pictures of our haul including a few of our heirloom tomatoes that I am pretty proud of. Now we just need some sunny days to get the rest of the garden looking this colourful.

Update: I hit publish and checked out my post – I need to share that I didn’t adjust the colours on my pictures at all. I’ve never had a garden this good.

Baby Bird loves vegetables. On the top of her favorites right now are peas (in the pod) and beans.

Some of my red potatoes are huge. We barbecue them up with some onions, butter and seasoning salt (all wrapped in tinfoil). These fresh potatoes are the best potatoes I have ever had.

See my nice looking gloves in these pictures? That’s an upcoming review, you’ll have to stay tuned.

These onions pack a good punch of flavour.

Yum Yum!

Thanks for letting me share my pictures with you. I hope you have a great weekend and that the sun is shining for you (and your garden, if you have one).

    Thanks for the post. I am always looking for ways to improve my gardening and cooking skills. My family loves eating real food.

      I agree, garden grown is the best tasting. Just made homemade salsa today. I’ll be posting about that this week.

    WET,yes i agree!

    I’ve had to pick some of my things before they have rotted… and i’m also battling deer!

    Not too bad a haul though.

    BTw- what kind of tomatoes are those purplish ones?

      Thanks Sami. Which ones are you referring to? I Have a potatoe and two red onion pictures in there. If you hover your mouse over the heirloom picture, I listed all of the tomatoes and the name should pop up.
