More Garden Eats

The giant zucchini plants continue to churn out zucchinis. I'm still trying to figure out something to make with the two larger ones... Below, are three of my beets. I'm not sure if I harvested them at the right time, but whatever. The baby carrots are thinnings. The green beans were more plentiful than I expected from our relatively small little plants.
I blanched the beans. Sautéed the smaller zucchs. And did this with the beet greens. It was all really tasty.
The beet greens were a new thing for us. I really liked the recipe (linked above) and would make it again, although I may skip the bacon and go for olive oil. It's been fun trying out all sorts of new recipes to accommodate our fresh garden goods and I have to say that the zucchini from our garden is the best I have ever had - the flavor is just amazing. Now I'm hungry again.

So delicious looking--especially the beets! I am so jealous! It has been really cold here so my veggies are suffering.
