I love all the silvery-greens in the garden. That toast and vege dish looks soooo good! Super yum.


Wow... just a lovely, soothing, beautiful post. I feel good. Thanks for sharing your garden, the harvest and the quilted garden too.

What a wonderful garden and the lovely bounty you're harvesting. The quilt is such a grand celebration of your garden. You probably already saw it already but in case you didn't, Mrs. Staggs posted some lovely canning projects on her A Happy Miscellany blog.


the quilt is looking gorgeous, looking forward to seeing the whole thing when its finished : )

Your bean teepee is such a great idea! I grew my beans in a pot and it just kept blowing over...I might just have to try the teepee next year.
Love the crazy patch..very sweet.


Beautiful photos! I'm hungry now!
Fall is such a great time, isn't it?

The sammy plate looks sooooo yummy! Nice crusty bread, tomatoes, cheese. Is there anything better? I think not!

If you ever make it over to Astoria, we have the best little restaurant here called the Urban Cafe (T Paul's Urban Cafe to be exact). Something we order every time we go (about twice a month) is their Tapas Duo - grilled crusty bread (with olive oil) with a layer of fresh tomatoes and basil, with two little dishes for topping... one with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and roasted pine nuts, and the other one is feta, sun-dried tomatoes and a few other secret ingredients I'm not privy to. Very hard to share... I want it all for myself. You must try it if you ever go!!!

Your photos and harvest are magical.


*Can* you freeze cucumbers? I never thought to do that... I guess I always assumed they'd just go all soft and mushy in the centers when they were thawed. Hmmm. I'll have to look into that!


So inspireing. Love the photos and the projects.

What beautiful colors in your garden. Lovely quilt, too! Can't wait to see the whole thing.


Beautiful post...love all the harvest colors...and the little quilt peek!
Just saw the new banner. Sweet!


very inspiring indeed! i just love everything i see over here!


Have you read the book about a green bean tree? It's a short children's book (2nd grade). I love that you make one every year. You have inspired me for next year!


We also have been having beans at least every third night. LOVE THEM! Your garden is beautiful, mine weedy but still kickin!


Lots of colour! The quilt looks great too ...


I'm packing the car right now and I'm driving the boys and I down there to live with you.

You can't stop me.

You have been warned.


What a wonderful looking lunch! My sister makes wonderful meals like that from her garden too. She's a vegetarian, and is always looking for good recipes. She sometimes marinates her zuchinni before grilling it. I always enjoy it served that way.
Your beautiful garden is rewarding you with an abundant harvest. All that hard work was worth it!
The colors in both the "Bright Lights" chard and your quilt are perfectly lovely!


You've outdone yourself with garden photos! My favorite is the chard--gorgeous color and texture.


Sigh. Your posts always make me so happy and contented. Thank you so much!


What wonderful photos - the colors
are just amazing. A very peaceful
post :-)!


I love your garden

What a beautiful garden and great produce! I think you did capture the garden in your quilt!

Good work, and sorry my english i am a portuguese woman.


oooooooooooo! What wonderful goodies from your garden! And...I love the quilt!


your garden is so amazing. Wow. That food your prepared, looks so lovely, and yummy. Almost to pretty to eat.
Have you ever tried chocolate zucchini cake? I just posted the recipe on my blog. It is too good to be a somewhat healthy cake!


Nature is so generous. It is such a great pleasure collecting and serving your own veggies! Beautiful pictures.


What a gorgeous garden!


That is one of the best bean teepees I think I've seen - your garden photos are always just magical.
