This years garden season was quite a fun one. Mainly because it was the first garden at our new house. Although, I must admit, I had not planned to have one this year because of the house renovations, full-time job, and elderly dog to take care of. But then I saw some plants on sale at our local market and I couldn’t resist.
The garden started out quite a bit rocky. A few weeks after I planted everything I went out to the garden and realized that I was not doing a great job at keeping up with the maintenance, the weeds had taken over. So that day I buckled down, pulled the weeds, unburied our plants, put in some paths, covered the bare areas with cut grass and “started again”.
Not everything did well, and a few plants died… we can’t win ‘em all. But after the garden got established it did pretty well. Thankfully things got ripe at a rate that I could process them and use them up before they went bad.
I thought it would be fun to put together a list of recipes for the tomatoes and peppers. Feel free to send me any recipes you would like to include in the line up.
