What a great idea. I am always looking for new ideas for the garden harvest.

So fun! I love this idea. Especially that you included radishes because I never know what to do with them. 🙂
I’m so excited about this! We are growing a huge garden this year & I would love to see some recipes for many of the items you have listed.
I just planted more radishes last week, about 10 small rows of them so I should have a lot to harvest right about that time 😉 I also planted radishes last month but not many came up, I’m having a problem with grubs too! But I did harvest 4 this weekend!
This is going to be awesome! Great idea! This will really come in handy! 🙂
Julia in WDM says
looking forward to these posts.

Love, Love, Love this new series- especially since I have been posting more of my garden updates and plan to start a new series of garden recipes! I will definitely be linking up and can’t wait to see what everyone else comes up with! 🙂 Thanks, Erin!
I love this idea – but what about trying to grow vegetables throughout the winter months. Thats my goal this year – I want to produce enough vegetables and fruit all year so I don’t have to buy them at the grocery store.

I love this series! I am blogging about my Frugal Garden this year and will be linking up when I can 🙂
Maybe, I’m a little lost, but I can’t seem to get to the posts from this page. Where do I find the recipes that have been submitted? We’ve got lots of radishes, and I’m looking forward to your ideas for how to serve them. Thanks.

This recipe looks good. Our garden isn’t fairing all that well this year either. I live in Northeast NJ and it has just been too hot. I get plenty of flowers on my eggplants, peppers, etc, but then they fall off without maturing. Someone mentioned to me that if things cool off a little, the plants will start producing more veggies. The only thing that is doing well is my cherry tomato plant and my italian parsley. I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
Are you planning on doing this again this year? I am trying to get my plans made for this year’s garden. Need to know in advance to budget for making my garden dreams come to be. Do you have any basic plans to share?
I am new to gardening-the dates listed, are these for planting or harvesting?

This looks like a lot of fun…but I will need to adjust the schedule for central Texas gardening. This place is a whole ‘nother country when it comes to gardening…LOL!
Great site. Thanks for sharing.
