This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. But Skippy always stood by me and was a great friend. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps and garden with me. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees and berry bushes, chickens and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

overabundance

fava pile squash in a bag

Overabundance, excess, surplus, flood, overload, surfeit, glut, oversupply, extra, excessive, too much .......

I was able to keep up with my spring lettuce this year even though there was a lot of it. And there has been a lot of broccoli, but not too much. But the favas and the summer squash are another story. They just won't stop.

Vicia faba
Cucurbita pepo (squash)

Here's a zucchini recipe to try to use up some of that oversupply.

Spinach and Zucchini Soup

I substitute chard leaves for the spinach at this point in the year when my spinach has long gone to seed.
