I harvested the first ripe Early Girl (I think) tomato. Enough green beans to freeze 2 small packages for soup. One cucumber. A few cherry tomatoes.
And a LOT of squash. I thought I planted yellow summer squash - like zucchini, but instead I have this crookneck squash that has a taste and texture that is a cross between summer squash and winter squash. I like it, but I'm running out of ways to cook it. Any ideas out there?
Hi Lorrie...please pass those little cherry tomatoes! Everything looks delicious ... Enjoy!ReplyDelete
Like you I am running out of ways to cook courgettes/zucchini.ReplyDelete
Just picked another half a dozen this afternoon.
I plan on blogging about 101 ways with courgettes very soon!
One of my favorite ways to prepare squash, is to peel it and parboil it for about 5-6 minutes, then saute it in garlic butter with a little bit of basil. Sprinkle some parmesan on when you serve it. Delicious!ReplyDelete
We do something like MotherT's suggestion above, except I never thought of the basil - that's one to try! We also chop it into cubes and cover it with cheese sauce (then more grated cheese) and bake it in the oven. Yum!ReplyDelete
what a wonderful harvest!!!!
i like tomatoes,too.
have a wonderful day,
Beautiful, bountiful harvest. I love the arrangement of red and green in the basket of tomatoes, beans and cucumber. Perhaps an adaptation of a butternut squash soup recipe would work for your excess crooknecks.ReplyDelete
Mmmmm.... those lovely tomatoes remind me of the recipe you shared a few summers ago.... I'll have to bring it out and make it soon.ReplyDelete
Wonderful garden bounty! I recently saw a recipe for corna dn yellow summer squash soup that looked very good. I also make squash risotto from time to time which is tasty --make sure to remove all the squash seeds and chopp it fine and use chicken broth as the base.ReplyDelete
Could you lob a few of those tomatoes our way? We will be harvesting green tomatoes this year - so it's a good thing I like chow-chow and green tomato curry. I guess it's just a bit high and shady to have grown tomatoes in a cool summer.ReplyDelete
Great pickings Lorrie!!ReplyDelete
I'm looking forward to summer with an abundance of fresh vegetables from the garden!
I can't wait to try Mother T's recipe for squash and courgettes - yummy!
That harvest is so pretty. I am watching my two little zucchinis with an eagle eye. I'm so impatient that I may have to grab them before they get too much larger. I envy you those lovely tomatoes.ReplyDelete
How have you been serving your squash? Do you like soup? I like it made up into a creamed soup.
