Earlier this summer my garden was one of my Monday Made Its. I am back with an update and some pictures to show how much it has grown! I have harvested strawberries, yellow squash, snow peas, zucchini, and green beans. The green beans were a bit of a surprise just last night. I was in the garden weeding (darn pesky weeds!!!) and I moved a green bean plant to the side a bit and I was pleasantly surprised to see many beans ready to be picked. I was able to pick two grocery sacks full of beans. Now I just need my mom's help to can them. It has been more than a few years since I canned beans so I had to call in the expert! Still growing are corn, bell peppers, eggplant, cucumbers, giant pumpkin, jack-o-lantern pumpkin, and pie pumpkin. Oh...and raspberries. This is the first year for the raspberry plants so they only have a few on them. I am excited to see how they taste!
This is how the garden started:
And this is what it looks like now:
I just love all the fresh produce I am able to get from my garden. My husband's birthday was a couple of weeks ago and he requested a pumpkin cake. I was able to use pumpkin from my garden last year, it was delicious!
I am really pleased with how they turned out!
Made it three was born from one of the many trips I have made to my classroom over the past week. I have been hauling in all the things I either brought home for the summer, bought, or made this summer. I have been using these fabulous bags I made for myself. They are large, sturdy, and easy to carry. I have been using them all school year for those awkward things that need to be carried back and forth. I know we all have our teacher bag, but the teacher bag is not for ice cream sunday items or minute to win it game things. For those things, we need a large bag.
I found this super cute fabric at Joann Fabrics and thought of all of you! This bag turned out better than my own bags and I am proud to offer it in my TPT store here.
Hope you all have a great week whether you are already back or in the last days of summer!
