The fruits of our labor!!

We planted a garden in May...
and it started out looking like this...

and it grew to this!!!

We grew eggplant

pumpkins

12 different tomato plants!

Sage, basil, dill and cilantro.

Every week I get 3 of these...

and have been making salsa, and crushed tomatoes!

We also got some of these...

and made a TON of this to enjoy all winter long!!!

I am so jealous!! I want a garden!! It looks beautiful. What wonderful fruits of your labors. I'll be right down for salsa and raspberry jam, maybe some of your moms yummy homemade bread?
Really spectacular garden!

Happy birthday!!! So awesome to have all those tasty things from your own garden.

That garden is awesome!!! I can't wait to have one of my own!! And yum-o...homemade salsa and jam are the BEST! (I just have to buy my ingredients from the store, but it would be so nice to get it from my very own garden). :)

Happy Birthday! I REALLY want a garden like that one day...but have a feeling my lack of a green thumb will leave me disappointed.

What an amazing garden. I have absolutely no green thumb so I always admire people who can grow things. And happy late birthday by the way! How fun Dorothy threw you a surprise party!

An AMAZING garden! Wow! I am totally jealous of all the fruits of your labor :), I don't think we'll have much of a chance to garden here in Vegas.
