August Garden Bounty

My August Garden
is in full production.

Note to self, if you ever want
to really garden and preserve - take holidays
for the month of mid-August to mid-September!

The beets need thinning
(should have done this a month ago)
and the parsnips are developing nicely.

The spaghetti squash are huge
and I can't wait to roast this one.

I planted these beets for my
favourite Beet Salad
(find the recipe on the above link)
This time I sprinkled it with roasted
pine nuts - so delicious.

Just add a juicy BBQ'd hamburger
and you have a great summer
evening meal.

Till next time .................... enjoying the harvest.


  1. Oh what a beautiful harvest it is! You must be feeling so good and strong eating all your fresh veggies. I'm feeling stronger just looking at all the colors and I really do feel inspired to visit the Farmer's Market!

  2. I think I'll pop on over for that salad and a hamburger!

  3. That beet salad looks so good!!! The garden harvest of August and September yield some of my favs. Just over the fence and across the field I see that my neighbours garden is bursting! I need a garden...but have no space. Good thing we live near many home grown stands that I frequent.

  4. Your beet salad looks so delicious. I just went out to the garden to dig some beets. I am not sure anymore which are the ones you sent me and which are the ones I planted from my packages....but you can bet I was thinking about you when I dug them and smiling.

  5. I'm so envious of your gorgeous beets. Off to check out the salad's beautiful!

  6. I'm on my way home...and have beets that need harvesting. Your beet salad is on the agenda! Yum.
