Homegrown Vegetable Recipes on OFL

Where flowers bloom so does hope.
~Lady Bird Johnson

Yesterday was beautiful here in Michigan, and the rest of the week is suppose to be nice too.  I'm doing a happy dance to celebrate being able to feel a breeze, and sit under our maple tree to read a bit.  I'm also harvesting cucumbers, herbs and some tomatoes, though a couple of the plants did not do well during the heatwave.  I hope all of you are getting a nice mix of sunshine and rain instead of the heat like we had here.

This week I have a new article on Old Fashioned Living with recipes using fresh summer vegetables. You'll find recipes for:

Roasted Garlic New Potatoes
Tomato Basil Soup
Zucchini Soup
Spaghetti Primavera

If you have vegetarian friends these are easy recipes to convert when they come over for dinner.  The soups are especially delicious. 

The article is here:
