In a cottage garden, vegetables are planted amongst the flowers. Intermingled with my lilies and coneflowers are 4 zucchini and 8 tomato plants. I'm enjoying watching them grow and have eaten a few of the former. Several more are on the kitchen counter, ready to make their way to the freezer. On frosty winter days, I'll pull out packets of zucchini and tuck into my own small harvest. Or large! I may need some recipes...
These plants aren't as far along, but plenty of blossoms hold the promise of tiny Sweet 100 and larger Brandywine tomatoes.
It's funny how more growth is taking place at the back of the garden.
With Mother Nature's continued cooperation (there is a heavy rainfall going on right now), I'll have plenty of zucchinis and tomatoes to enjoy and share. It is a rather satisfying feeling!
Thank you so much for visiting. I've opened the garden gate at Fishtail Cottage where I'm participating in "Cottage Flora Thursday" . Take a wander over to see a variety of lovely blogs.
