My husband and I had a chance to garden this year. You see we live in duplex with hardly any yard so that just isn't something we normally get to do. However, there is an elderly lady at church with a garden plot the size of small house. Her health hasn't been very well the past couple of years and she can no longer maintain the garden herself. She doesn't like to see this very productive, composted garden plot go to waste so she lets a few people garden there. We were some of the lucky ones. It's been nice. I can hop on my bike and ride to the garden when its my turn to water and of course we get lots of produce when the garden is the size of a house. On Monday we went to water and we brought home 4 heads of lettuce, a lot of tomatoes in several varieties, carrots, zucchini, squash and a couple of peppers. We made a delicious salad for lunch.

and a delicious little tomato and bell pepper omlette
Last night I made a quiche. Ignore the fact that it looks like a pizza, because it's a quiche. Also ignore the fact that the crust is kind of ugly. I don't think I had enough flour in it so it didn't hold shape very well. It was delicious none the less.
