A Farewell to the Garden Frittata


As summer ends, the garden's bounty has begun to fizzle out.  The summer blessed us with an abundance of blackberries, strawberries, tomatoes, zucchinis, cucumbers, and peppers.  How exciting it was to see everything grow little by little until it was harvest time.



Tonight's dinner was a farewell to the garden frittata.  I used the very last of the peppers along with some fresh mushrooms, scallions, and spinach. Delicious!

Have you bid farewell to your garden?

  1. Gina,
    Your dinner looks delicious.
    And although we do not have a garden, we do enjoy fresh garden goodies during the summer.
    And as much as I LOVE fall...and you know I do...I am sad to see the fresh garden offerings end.
    Have a cozy evening!

    1. Billie Jo, yes the garden does look a little sad right now but I like to think about it as it has earned a nice rest after working so hard this spring & summer.

  3. The bounty from your Summer garden sounds fabulous, Gina. The Frittata looks delicious. How sad to see the produce disappear. Down here, I can't wait till our veggie garden starts gifting us.

    1. Kim, what are you planting this year? We've thought about putting in an autumn garden but we are a bit late at this point.

  4. My mother's garden has provided many meals for us this summer. But she and my sisters put up a lot of veggies to see them through the winter.

    1. Arlene, how wonderful! I should can vegetables but it seems we eat them faster than we can grow them. :-)

    1. Kitty, I was very stingy with the cheese and only used a little so it wasn't AS good as in the past but still tasty. xx

  6. Down here in Southern Illinois it is still quite warm so my peppers are still doing very well, although I have had to water them the soil was getting quite dusty, it is so sad when the garden is no longer, but so nice that we can freeze and can and have things throughout winter :)

    1. Connie, did you plant green peppers or another kind? As a child, we always called them bell peppers but I don't think they are truly called that.

  7. Fritatta sounds wonderful! We had our first freeze here last Friday night. I've been working to compost it all. Sad to see the season end, but looking forward to the fall season too. Hugs to you today :)

    1. Barb, you are absolutely right. Eggs, lots of cheese and vegetables though I had a lighter touch with the cheese this time. xx

  9. Dear Gina,

    I still have a few herbs and flowers in pots, but for the most part, I didn't have a garden this year with the move and all. I have been frequenting the wonderful local farmers markets, which are still producing quite a bit. It's been in the 90s here in Missouri lately, so hopefully the farmers' winter crops have gotten over-heated!

    Love,

    Marqueta

    1. Marqueta, do you have room for a garden next year? I don't know what we'd do without Farmers Markets! I visited one recently and everything was so beautiful!
