I planted a garden this summer. Did I tell you that? Normally, I don't even try because I tend to kill things. And rather quickly. But this year I was DETERMINED to grow something.
So I had my FIL build me a raised bed on the side of our house.
And I actually had things GROW. Over the summer we enjoyed radishes and lettuces and swiss chard, lots of basil and chives and parsely. Carrots and cucumbers. Oh my! It was de-lish!
Now that the weather is getting cooler my monstrosity of a tomato bush (seriously this thing is huge! see pic below) is finally ready for harvesting a bunch of tomatoes! And if you know me IRL you know I love, love, LOVE fresh, homegrown tomatoes (and this heirloom variety was named "best of Seattle" how could I go wrong?)! I've been more excited about this plant than really any other in my garden (other than broccoli. But that was a bust- the aphids took over and there was nothing left of it :( )
So Wednesday morning I went out and picked everything I could!
CSA farmers and roasted them!
