How My Garden Grows in June ~ Part 1

It’s hard to believe a month has gone by since I last showed you my garden pictures. But what’s really “shocking” is how much the garden has grown in four weeks’ time! You know the saying, “You can’t see the forest for the trees”? Well, I think that applies here because I knew my garden was growing; I just didn’t realize how MUCH it had grown until I compared the recent pictures with last months’ pictures. It makes this gardener all giggly. 🙂 Be sure to click the links I added so you can compare these pictures to last month’s pictures, as well. How my garden grows in June!

How My Garden Grows in May ~ Part 1

I can’t believe it’s been four or five weeks since I started transplanting and sowing seed in my garden. During that time, the weather changed from cold to springlike comfort to scorching summer heat back to springlike comfort. And it’s rained only twice in that time period, too. However, my garden is growing, and I want to share pictures of all my raised beds. I’ll also include links to compare the beds to how they looked a month ago. Because my garden is so large, I’ll share my pictures in two parts – so come back tomorrow for the second half! How my garden grows in May!

Pumpkin Oatmeal Breakfast Bake

Pumpkin oatmeal bake - slice SG

Pumpkin pie is my favorite dessert, and I could eat it twelve months a year. I love pumpkin. Everything pumpkin. Yet, I don’t like oatmeal. At least, not the mushy bowl of oatmeal most people eat in the morning. To be honest, this Yankee girl would take grits over mushy oatmeal any day! So, I went on a quest to find an oatmeal breakfast recipe that wasn’t mushy, and I found Crunchy-Top Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal. It was so good, I decided to find a way to modify it so I could have my pumpkin and eat my oatmeal, too. And Pumpkin Oatmeal Breakfast Bake was born. Recipe!
