Holy jalapenos batman!

When I was taking these pictures I was thinking they were kind of anti-climactic because it's hard to get a good picture of a plant. However, my mama asked for garden pics so here they are : ) Love you mom! Also, I noticed while I was uploading these what a huge difference there is from the last pictures I took a few weeks back. I didn't really realize how much our garden has grown. We've had guacamole with the jalapenos, tomatoes just the way they are, ratatouille with the eggplant, green beans, bell peppers, strawberries, and we'll be having okra tonight. One thing that has me kind of perplexed is the squash and zucchini. The plants have grown, they start to bear veggies but they never get any bigger than an inch maybe and then they wither up. What gives?!? Anywho, here are some photos for your enjoyment!
Our tomatoes are the most exciting to look at because they are the biggest and they have by far the most fruit
Our carrots are nearly ready to come up
Our bell peppers and eggplant (Japanese eggplant) are neighbors
Our little jalapenos which I don't have too many recipes for, ideas are welcomed
Our okra which grew practically overnight!

The girls were drawing impressionist artwork for the birds to enjoy from their back window, so thoughtful
I had to post this picture because someone actually muttered "there's nothing to eat!" I nearly died, ha ha. I think they expect to open the fridge and see a plate of food already warmed and everything! Just imagine if they lived when there were no microwaves : )
Hope all is well! Happy Summer ~ XOXO -Amber
