Garden update

We're not looking so well over here in our garden.  While we were on vacation, something happened.  Maybe it is getting too much water?  We're not sure, but we're kind of sad.

We dug up some of the potatoes and cooked them and they were small but tasted good.  Here is a closeup of the plant:

But in the other garden bed, the zucchini are thriving...

Every time I turn around, more zucchini are ready to pick!  It's totally amazing!  We have so many zucchini we don't know what to do with them all!


Here's a good recipe for zucchini bread and it made 12 muffins.  I had to double it because I wanted to use an entire zucchini.

1 cup minced zucchini
1 egg
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1.5 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup sugar (I reduced this and it was still good!)
1.5 cups flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Add all contents to blender and secure lid.  Blend.  Cook in greased muffin tins for 25 minutes.

We also made the Moosewood Restaurant's Zuccanoes

 In other garden news, the corn is looking great!

 And the apple trees are getting so big!
