Today in my garden

Today I enjoyed some time working in the garden. I snapped these photos using the Hipstamatic app on my iphone. Look at these beautiful sunflowers...
 I wish the sky was really this blue.
 Today's harvest
 Another look at the 12 foot tall sunflower plants
 Green beans growing abundantly and cantaloupe trailing through the raised bed.
 Another view of the harvest

I picked 17 pounds of mostly beefsteak varieties of tomatoes, along with eggplant, peppers, green beans and basil. Those orangey-yellow ones are the Kentucky Beefsteaks.
 And they made a delicious lunch

Will they get any taller? I've never seen them grow that high before! The photos are beautiful

I Love it when the harvest gets going full throttle. Those tomatoes look beautiful. But there's always two much for just the two of us. Do you have any great recipes for tomatoes or courgettes (Zucchini)?
