Salad From The Garden

 My first bounty...
 I am not a gardener to say the least.  I really am not.  However, these past couple of years for whatever reason, maybe it's my old age...
I have been wanting to have a small garden.  I always plant herbs in pots because I love them and when you add fresh herbs into your dishes, well that just plain rocks.  I haven't none-the-less been able to grow a lick of vegetables.  I mean a lick I say!  Till this year.

Above are my cucumbers, heirloom tomatoes, fresh basil, and chives.  All from my garden!!  I was squealing in delight as I gathered a small bowl to harvest these precious gems in.  I had to get ready for the part, so I put on my gardening gloves, my garden crocs, equipped myself with my gardening shears and off I went towards my two little raised garden beds.  What was missing in this picture was my big floppy hat and flowing sundress.  *What*

My peppers are just starting to come to fruition, and my eggplants are thriving.  The zucchini is coming along too, even though I consider it very small.  Heck, I'll take anything at this point.
I'm so proud of my little patch.  I dressed these babies with some Feta cheese don't you know.  When the ribs are done I will make a very simple olive oil & red wine vinegar vinaigrette and that will be our dinner along with an amazing sun dried tomato & parmesan baguette hubby picked up at our local Wegmans. 

Didi loves gardening?  Who would of have thunk?

Till next time!
