Gosh, I love summer. I was feeling a lil' nibbly so went out and picked whatever was ready from the backyard. It was all so flavourful, honestly the best thing I've eaten in days. The difference between our ugly misshapen veg and that perfect looking but bland tasting stuff from the grocery store is incredible! There's simply no comparison.



What's your favourite edible to grow? We tried tomatillo this year.  It's a bit outrageous, one single plant's taken over half a large planter box. I'll make something when we harvest them and post the recipe, they are very tasty, yum yum.

I grew little orange cherry tomatoes this year.  They are so good.

Cherry tomatoes were about all we grew the first 2 years, maybe half a dozen varieties. I posted photos here of the crazy jungle the backyard turned into, it was amazing. They sprouted up everywhere there is dirt including the front yard last year and this. I left about 20 of them to see how they would do, we're going to be overrun with tiny tomatoes in about a month or so, they neighbours will be finding baskets of them on their porches for weeks!

The green one came along with the red one, we'll see if it ripens up near a window.

If I was only making meals for myself I could easily forage from the garden alone.

Oooooo....we love tomatillos. The green sauce that we put on fish tacos is fantastic if you like spicy:

We also just dip chips in it or put it on eggs, rice, just about anything really.

Awesome! If your garden is anything like mine, you'll be weeding tomatillo volunteers for years to come. They are tenacious!

I have a small home garden that's mostly herbs, as I take so many veggies home from work with me. Every couple weeks I harvest enough basil to make a big batch of pesto, yum!

What? No!! There are already dozens of cherry tomato volunteers, they've migrated all the way from the backyard to the front (squirrels & maybe also children, haha). We garden in boxes but they spring up wherever there's even a hint of soil. It's getting wild out there.
