What's growin ??

Our garden plot is a 10x20 and I planted 4-5 of each plant. Here is a list of what we have growing:

Honeybear squash
Butternut Squash
Summer Squash
Acorn Squash
Brussels Sprouts
Pole and Bush beans
Savoy Cabbage
Collard Greens
Plum tomatoes
Hot peppers
Sweet peppers
Sadly....our 5 cauliflower plants fell victim to the centipede. Moment of silence please...
I am so very sad about this because we had all 5 heads about the size of a tennis ball and I was so excited about picking them, cooking and pureeing them and sneaking them into Henry's homemade Mac n Cheese.

Here is what I do to Mac n Cheese:
Whole Wheat pasta
Ricotta cheese
Puree cauliflower and white beans
Spinach, garlic
or  I may add purred carrots and Cheddar cheese for yellow Mac n Cheese

Boil n drain pasta, add puree veggies, cheese , dash of milk or butter , spinach, garlic and mix together. Sometimes I top it with wheatgerm or flax seed. Yummy!!!
