Backyard Garden Harvest!


In the Florida panhandle, we can garden all year long. I really enjoyed the kale(did you try my favorite kale recipe?) and collards from my winter garden, but I have really missed fresh green beans.

This last week was the start of the harvests from my spring garden.


I love fresh green beans! They are nothing like their commercially canned, mushy counterparts or the watery, commercially frozen beans.


I love fresh yellow squash too. So far I have harvested 6. If you are having trouble with your baby squash or cucumbers shriveling and dying, be sure to read my post on how to prevent wrinkly baby squash syndrome.


My cucumber plants are beginning to sprawl so I must put up a trellis for them ASAP. They are near a large privacy fence and I have a neat idea for a support. I plan to post pictures of this DIY cucumber trellis-the trellis will be quick to assemble and inexpensive to make!

I have many tiny green tomatoes and am looking forward to juicy BLTs and fresh salsa!

What are you harvesting?

    • Thanks! It is so fun! I love being able to grab green onions to accent a meal or a sprig or two of herbs to brighten a dish. There is probably something you could put in the ground now if you are feeling the urge to grow vegetables again. 🙂

  1. Sarah! Your yellow squash and green beans look wonderful! We are harvesting tomatoes, but they usually get eaten before they get to the house! I just ate one and it was as sweet as candy!

  2. Your vegetables look great. I worked on expanding our garden today and yesterday so I can plant carrots, beets, and beans. Can’t wait till things start taking off around here, but here in Michigan it won’t be for a while still.
