Giant Vegetables and Weekly Menu 7/27 - 7/31

Despite the fact we've had a rather cool summer in Minnesota & are in the midst of a drought our little raised vegetable garden seems to be going crazy. Our tomato plants are so heavy with fruit they can barely stand despite the fact they are in cages.

The hugest zucchini I've ever seen. Yeah, you'll be seeing zucchini on our menu.

Now these aren't big by any means but I'm happy to see our cherry tomatoes finally start to ripen.

It's been so rainy here. I think we have your rain. How about I send a little your way? We have also had lots of cool weather. My eggplants are not doing so well. I am wondering about the yield on our tomatoes.

Love the kohlrabi. I 'd like to plant that next year. I will have to wait and see what you do with it.

Matt,
Stop showing off!
All guys say it's "that big!".
You had better make some zucchini bread with that one!

What beautiful veggies! We tried to plant a garden one year but the bugs just ate everything before it could even grow :(

Lucky! We've had a lot of rain, and our tomatoes are flowering but half the plants died and they are certainly nowhere near fruiting!
