MY SUMMER '06 HARVEST !


Would you look at those beautiful Veggies!! Yup, I just cut those fresh from my veggie patch, my first picks:) Every June I cannot wait to go to Garden store and buy these little plants and plant them.Sometimes I start them from seeds. When they start growing, they become almost like my children.Every dry fruit or branch pains me!!

These are my milder peppers!!

A picture of my beautiful Green Marrow or Bottle Gourd as it called. Few more weeks of summer, it's time to clean up my garden to be ready for the next year ! :(






Pictured below is my Thai or Bird chilli Plant with all it's glory!! They are not ready to pick yet. When they are, they all go to my freezer to use the whole winter and spring until next summer !

Thank you Revathi for sharing that! Atleast there is one out there who understands my feelings!

I laughed aloud when I read about your mint and the blender, it does feel like little bit of death, isn't it? HA...HA..HA...

Appreciate it!!

Thanks for visiting my veggie garden , Jaya!! As you can see you are the second person who is interested in gardening :)
They are a joy and I always look for others gardens too. Feels good, doesn't it?

EWwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww! They really look horrible, really horrible, don't think I can sleep tonight. will look at your tendli palya now.

Foodie's Hope said...

HA HA HA,sra!! Told you!! It was disgusting even to touch it!

Wonder if it's grown just like that or they wrap something around it while they are growing! Pretty scary for Halloween though!
Palya is the better option,run!!:D

You grow your own veggies, too? You are amazing! Beautiful photos.

You weren't kidding about those pumpkins - that's some pretty serious hideous! What was the grocer thinking?

Asha said...
