A quick update on our patio garden:

We determined that our pepper and tomato plants were being viciously attacked by relentless aphids and cutworms and have begun taking action against them!

So far, we've enjoyed the following from our garden:
  • 7 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 green onion
  • lots of chives, basil, dill, parsley, rosemary, and thyme
  • 3 sweet banana peppers
  • 3 strawberries
  • 2 Serrano peppers
Not much...but it's ours, and the flavors can't be beaten.

What a great sounding menu you have for this week. My garden failed miserably, so it will be fresh produce from the local farmers markets it seems.

How great that you can enjoy produce from your garden already! We're up North, so nothing is quite ready yet, but I can't wait!

What a yummy sounding menu! I always admire people who manage to plan out three meals a day. I am working my way up to it, very slowly!

The stuffed shells look wonderful! And I could do some with meat for hubby.
Our tomato plants are just starting to bud. :) Isn't it exciting to check out what is happening in your garden everyday?!
