9 Delicious Recipes From Garden Fresh Fruits & Veggies

Good morning! I hope y’all are having a great week. It’s rained like cats and dogs here the past few days and I think there’s more to come. It’s kind of nice not to have to haul water around to make sure everything doesn’t die. 🙂 I absolutely LOVE this time of year with all the garden fresh  vegetables and orchard fresh fruits. Our tomato plants haven’t done too much yet this year, but I have harvested a few bell & jalapeno peppers.

I love cooking with fresh ingredients either from the garden or from the farmer’s market. Enjoying delicious food from home grown produce is one of THE BEST perks of Summer. Right?!

I would love to hear what your favorite Summer recipe is! Do you have a garden? Do you buy produce from the farmer’s market?

Either way, get your cookin’ on! 🙂




  1. I pinned your post because I host a group of 12 in October. Wouldn’t the roasted sweet potatoes be a tasty nod to fall ( although it’ hot here at that time or it can be cold!! One never knows!!). I also thought if I could get to a farmers market I’d like to do the tomatoes too! Have that oven hot for two things!! Then wouldn’t it be fun to have the crunchy cukes as a side with a salad? Ill do shredded chicken in the crockpot and have brown rice and salsa. Hmmmm….
    I might have to ask my hubby to make his guacamole. Just Haas (black skinned) acacado mashed with garlic powder, a dash of garlic salt and a giant serving spoon of non-fat Greek yogurt. Taste and adjust seasonings. We usually make in batches of four to six avacados at a time for a group! Serve with tortilla chips but I really like it with celery–or on my bread or salad 😉 thanks again!!!

  2. This is a wonderful collection of recipes. I am going to try Roasted Sweet Potatoes because right now I only have access to potatoes.

  3. Excellent recipe, I have now updated my garden and even allocated a place for growing vegetables. I’m already waiting for the new vegetables to ripen to repeat your salad. In fact it is a fascinating process and it is very nice to know that you are growing the food you eat.
