Garden Update

I havent shared much about our garden. Its been PRODUCING! I love going outside to "pick my dinner"!
Our one red tomato. We have tons of green ones!
Lots of gold, red and purple potatoes. The bushes are starting to die. I was told you harvest once the bushes are dead but you can steal from the sides until then.
OUR CORN IS HUGE! I guess I didnt realize it can be 10ft tall?!

its been a battle keeping the slugs out of the cabbage!

Lots of lettuce and greens. I already blanched and froze a bunch of collard greens. I figured I could through them in soups and stirfry this winter.Tons of green beans. My very favorite when fresh. We have yellow ones too! The green and purple are Oregon Giants. The seeds are from my Filipino grandpa that my parents continue to keep alive.

Purple Potatoes. So fun.

My dinner. I just smothered a frozen piece of chicken breast with cut up onion, potato, carrot and thyme from the garden drizzled with olive oil, salt, pepper and balsamic. 375deg 45mins. So Easy.
also in the freezer are my sugar peas and snow peas.
