more garden adventures.

garden 2
I posted the other day about my adventures in the garden. As autumn has been settling in I had to make one last trip to the garden. Since my sister and brother in law were in Ireland I couldn't let any food go to waste! Jonas and Joshua helped me gather and pick the few remaining items. Fresh beets, roma tomatoes, zucchini squash, cherry tomatoes and several varietals of peppers. Now it's time for me to get in the kitchen and get cooking. I'm thinking marinara, chocolate zucchini cake, zucchini fritters, cold tomato soup with a kalamata and feta (for Jon) compote, and possibly some canned peppers. I'll let you know how it goes!

As a random side note, I'm thinking about making the photos of my blog larger. I've been wanted to do this for awhile, but it will change the look of all past posts, which kinda bothers me. I'm thinking I need to just get over that and move forward. Thoughts? I've also been editing my photos less and and experimenting with under (and sometimes over) exposure. Again, thoughts? Any advice is always welcome ;)


  1. that all sounds so delicious! Especially since everything this fresh out of your garden!!!!

  2. Chocolate zucchini cake ... Mmmm ...
    Zucchini fritters ... Mmmm ...
    Homemade marinara ... Mmmm ...

    I would love to see your photos larger; they are so wonderful. The personal preferences of photographers are so interesting. I like my photos a bit overexposed, and that fits me, I think. Your preference for photos that are a bit underexposed is perfect for you.

    Dive in!
