Aaron and I enjoy our little ‘urban garden’ and I love the way zucchini takes over my currently-in-progress side-yard bed, making it look SO MUCH MORE lush than it really  is all summer! I almost stumbled over the biggest zucchini I have ever seen last night as I was walking up to the house so I picked that baby and Aaron grilled it for our supper – but not before I took a photo for posterity. 

I may have said in the spring that I completely adore watching plants grow and flowers bud and it’s so fun to (literally) eat the fruits of our labor. I don’t think I’ll ever be happy without a little garden plot. What about you? What plants do you most enjoy tending to?

PS – We don’t actually use ‘Miracle Grow’, our garden is totally organic – another bonus of doing it ourselves!
