Fresh from the Community Garden this growing season...

The Community Garden that I posted about a while back, (the one that's just down the street) is winding down for the season.  About all that's left now is a row of tomatoes, some chili plants & a few green bean plants.  Considering the severe drought we had this summer, we are lucky that we had any veggies to harvest at all.  Even though the harvest was less than stellar this year,  I was able to take some cool pictures of what was ready for harvest during the growing season, so I thought I'd share the photos & a couple of things I made with the goodies.

Easy Pickled Garden Veggies ~ I found this recipe on how to make easy pickled garden veggies, just using hot water, vinegar & a few other ingredients.  I made a jar full of pickled green beans, okra & mini pickles.  Can't wait to try them out!

Air Dried Chili Peppers ~ This recipe has to be the easiest & prettiest way to dry chili peppers.  They make me happy every time I see them.  The chilis keep getting redder & redder as the days go by.  There will be lots of chilis for cooking, all winter long.  :)

Almost all the colors of the rainbow!

This batch of veggies turned into ~ Oven Roasted Ratatouille with Balsamic Vinegar Glaze.  I'll be posting that recipe soon.  It turned out sooo good!
Until next year, Community Garden.  Thanks so much for sharing your bounty with all of us!
