It was 70 degrees for us yesterday and it felt like spring. What a nice time to remember all the vegetables that was grown in our garden through the years.
The green pumpkin was a surprise many years ago. We had just planted zucchini and for many months we did not have anything and was surprised to see this beauty in the corner of our garden. So did we plant pumpkins again. No we did not. We just have a few months of growing season and we are happy with our cucumbers and tomatoes.

Green peppers are not easy to grow. We just get a few.
Lettuce was an easy one to grow, but the birds loved it so much once they found I was planting. I rarely plant it now.
Depending on the weather tomatoes have always been our bumper crop.
No one likes to eat zucchini but they are so easy to grow and boy do they grow big.
To stop my critters and birds from eating my beans we made a smaller fence around the plants. Last October we ate beans every day. We now know the trick to grow them! (touchwood)
Those tiny peppers are not spicy. But the smell is so wonderful.
Just like zucchini, cucumbers seem to do well in our garden. The entire month of August, we harvest them.
Gardening is not easy. It is so much of work, but I do feel it keeps my family engaged most of the summer in a very positive way. Every year, my husband says this is the last year I am putting in the effort and that he would do no more next year. But come spring, we are at the nursery picking up one plant or another.
