Pasta with Ground Beef, Zucchini and Cherry Tomatoes; death throes of a garden — 12 Comments

  1. I think this is how commerce got started – the gardener with too much to eat and preserve. Enjoy the last few lovely weeks of fresh veggies.

  2. Katie – I am going through the same thing. Zucchinis still with flowers, green tomatoes that I am sure will not ripen…garden looks awful. I am giving myself one more week..then we will see, by then it might be the end, our weather is cooling fast! Love anything with zucchini – so versatile.

  3. i’m so jealous of your garden bounty – my courgettes have been teeny and/or nibbled by field mice and my tomatoes have only just started to ripen! thanks for sharing with ppn – it looks delish!

  4. I hear you! I’m up to my ears in tomatoes too. I should can them but I’ve never canned and I find it daunting because I worry about the bad stuff that can happen with canning.

  5. Not having any garden, I live vicariously through yours…and then head out to the market to pretend all that wonderful bounty comes from mine. Thanks for sharing a great dish with Presto Pasta Night.

  6. Never know, you may find that coat coming in handy some time. Switzerland maybe in the winter?
    Your dish sounds perfect for using up those veggies. The tomatoes here are pretty much hothouse, except for the little cherry tomatoes. We have fruit flies which sting garden variety ones.

  7. Zoomie, I think you are absolutely right!
    Ina, ours just cooled down overnight…. so fast!
    Manningroad, I live in the middle of farm country – everyone with the same problem ;-))
    Thanks, Katerina…. it’s so nice to hear that.
    Abby, wish I could send you some…
    Nirmala, freeze them…. Of course, you have to have a big freezer….
    Ruth, at least markets don’t make one feel guilty….
    Julie, I complain, but I will miss them.
    Claudia, that’s why I still have it…. one never knows what’s next LOL Bummer about the fruit flies.

  8. I just love the colors of this pasta dish. I find it really nice. Very healthy pasta dish, too.
