Mary, Mary, quite contrary,
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells, and cockle shells,
And pretty maids all in a row


  1. Oh wow, you already have zucchini? That bread is one of my favorites!

  2. Oehhh that Zucchini bread looks delicious, and definitly something for me to try out! I am a huge bread lover :)
    Thanks for sharing!

  3. Wow you have a great area for growing in! It's huge!

  4. mmmm, this cake is tempting me, is similar to the one with the carrots.
    Compared to yours, my vegetablegarden is much smAAAAAAAAller, We have already eaten all the salad , but I have really good tomatoes, carrots, celery, onions, shallots, and various odors, that will end before the end of summer.....

  5. mmmm Zucchini bread for breakfast, mmmmmmmm So moist it doesn't even need butter or cream cheese. No celery or onion; our Spring salad is coming to an end and it's time to put in some summer salad. Past time actually! The carrots will have to be pulled up in October at the this rate. But that's all good: Carrot soup for the Fall months. The new (old) freezer chest (from auction, $23) will be full of our veggies!

  6. Girl ! you have the greenest thumb of any one I have ever known. Everything looks amazing and lush. I'm so jealous xxx

  7. your garden looks incredible, and makes me feel very jealous, us being on the other side of the world, in the middle of winter, with a vege patch looking very sad right now! love the sound of that recipe ... will stash it away until we are harvesting our own zucchini in a few months. enjoy! :-)

  8. I was introduced to the deliciousness that is zucchini bread by an American work collegue = Yum!

    My plants are only just flowering so none for me yet. :-(
