Shade. Weeds. Bugs. All these banded together to make a less than stellar growing season in our little backyard.
Or so I thought.
Despite all that, look what my trusty little garden is gifting us these days:
A bit of backyard protein, soybeans!
Some volunteer gourds, and cheerful sunflowers.
Scarlet runner beans, pink girl tomatoes, green zebra tomatoes, bell peppers, and basil
These paired up with some smoked mozzarella from the market to make this surprisingly gourmet array of foccacia.
And who says you can't have foccacia for dessert? That last one is covered in apple butter!
