My Parents’ Garden

My parents' garden

My parents always plant a huge garden! 

Here’s a peek at what they grew this year:

So. Many. Tomatoes.

They grew a couple varieties of tomatoes.  They ended up with so many grape tomatoes!

My mom uses the tomatoes to make homemade pasta sauce & salsa.  She also freezes the tomatoes to use in chili.

My parents also grow a ton of corn.  My mom normally takes the corn off the cob & freezes it, but we had some fresh corn on the cob one night & it was sooo good!

We also use the corn stalks as fall decor!

Remember my post in the spring with the fruit blooms?  Well, here they are now!  My mom used the Bartlett pears to create a yummy pear jam!

Aaand that wraps up ‘garden week’ here on the blog!  I had so much fun showing you my garden & my parents’ garden!
