Wow, such a great garden! This summer I've had to garden vicariously through bloggers. :)

We grew tomatillos the past few years. One thing I made and stocked the freezer with was green enchilada sauce. http://ourbestbites.com/2010/03/green-enchilada-sauce/ I froze it in 3-cup portions, which was perfect for a pan of enchiladas. Last year each time I made it, I doubled the recipe for everything except for the chicken broth. We love green enchiladas, and I also used it in this soup recipe: http://www.scatteredthoughtsofacraftymom.com/2012/12/favorite-slow-cooker-recipes-creamy.html (Usually I made it stove top, rather than in the slow cooker.)

Toots

You inherited your great-grandfather's green thumb. Unfortunately I didn't. I know how much work goes into having wonderful gardens like that, great job!

Kathy

Hannah, what amazing gardens! You've done a great job, both in the gardening itself and in sharing all the bounty via the blog. I enjoyed the tour. God bless the harvest. Mrs. W.

victoria

Your gardens are gorgeous. You should start giving guided tours (for a fee of course)! :) Your family certainly has the greenest thumbs I've ever known. Hope it gets passed to the next generation.

Joanna

I need Deb to come to my house and give me some flower garden ideas! I would love to grow more flowers but I don't have any skill on placement, arranging, etc.... Your gardens are always so beautiful!

Hannah

Ana,
Thank you for your compliments!

Tammy,
Those recipes look great! We love Mexican food, so I’ll have to try them. Thanks for sharing! And glad my post could help you enjoy “gardening” in spite of your busy year.

Aunt Toots,
I’m happy I can carry on a family trait. :)

Mrs. White,
Glad you could come along on my tour. I’ve had folks asking about the garden, and especially Granny misses being here to see the harvest, so I wanted to show her what I’ve been up to.

Victoria,
The fee for a tour could be for each person to pull a few weeds as they walk by. ;) I’m thankful for God’s blessings on our efforts.

Joanna,
Mom says she really doesn’t have any skill either, she just plunks her plants wherever! ;)

Chris

Beautiful!! Lovely!! Inspiring!! God's beauty is so amazing!!Thanks for sharing Hannah!!!!

Danielle

Yes, wow wow what lovely gardens and flowers!! You and your mom must have special green thumbs... What a nice tour, thanks for sharing all your pictures Hannah! I loved the mailboxes, both of them. What a neat idea to store garden tools inside for ease of use. All your veggies and tomatoes look so good... They made me hungry! 🙂 We're growing some roma tomatoes this year, just getting a few of them turning red in the garden. So glad you all got plenty of rain for all your plants so far this summer. God bless you, hope everyone is doing well!

Cathy

How in the world do you manage to plant, harvest and weed such a large area? We have a small garden, courtesy of my son, but it's difficult to keep up with it. He does a good job, but weeds still need to be pulled, etc. I think that your mom does the lawn mowing...what kind of mower does one use for a space this big?

Wow, is all I can say! It looks great.

Hannah

Thanks, Chris, you're right that God's creation is beautiful!

Danielle,
Thanks for coming along on my tour. :) If ever you are in VA, we’ll take you a personal one!

Cathy,
The garden definitely takes much work, and even then it is hard to keep everything completely under control! We have a riding mower and everything can usually be mowed in about 3 hrs.

Kris

Your gardens are so lovely! Ours has struggled this year. I don't know if it's because it's been so hot or the little amount of rain we've gotten. But I will use what I can get and be thankful. :)
Blessings, Kris in NE

Shari

Oh my word!!!!!! Soooooo beautiful!!!!!! Y'all definitely have green thumbs!!!! What a blessing to have such lovely flowers and herbs and produce growing!!!!

Oh! Tomatillos. This is our favorite enchilada sauce- http://ourbestbites.com/2010/03/green-enchilada-sauce/

Since we moved, I still haven't gotten the hang of our yard. I miss our old yard that was sooooo easy to grow everything in.

Hannah

Thanks, Kris, for the comment. It seems every year is a bit different in results - maybe next season will be better for you!

Shari, thanks for sending along the enchilada sauce recipe - I’ll have to give it a try! Thanks for the kind words.
