A journal documenting the trials and tribulations of gardening on the rocky coast of Downeast Maine. My attempt at keeping in touch with my many friends and loved ones who live all across the nation.

The Invasion Has Begun!
They started off slow and unobtrusive - I could go out into the garden and pick just a few small ones for dinner. Then, we had company over the weekend and I didn't get out to look and pick and here is only the beginning of the zuchini invasion. From the looks of the hordes of small ones on the bushes, we may be eating them sauteed with onions and garlic, braised in tomatoes with green peppers, stuffed with mystery meat, shredded into bread and heaven only knows what else! The big joke in Maine is that July and August are the only months you have to lock your car. If you don't, you may find a huge bag of zuchini in your back seat!
Gardening and knitting fanatic! I love digging in the dirt (what little I have of it!) My zone 5 garden is located on 2 1/2 heavily wooded, rocky acres on the coast of Downeast Maine and is shared by Hubby and our two cats, Spike and Sluggo. When unable to garden, I love to knit, cook, pursue my photograpy, bake and read numerous other blogs.
