|our pumpkin plant. so far we have one little lovely coming in!|
I planted pumpkins earlier this year than I usually do. Which means I'll have pumpkins way before halloween. But I'm ok with that, as long as I have pumpkins! I've never had a successful pumpkin patch because I've tried to time it with halloween (planting seeds on the 4th of July). This year I planted them in May and we already have one little punkin coming in! I'm thrilled!

Onto the salad. This salad is the taste of summer. Oh! I think I'll call it that so it will sound fancy. Introducing THE TASTE OF SUMMER SALAD!!!
You will need:
3 tablespoons of plain yogurt ( I really like Greek yogurt in this)
handful of grape tomatoes
and some fresh parsley ( if you want it to be pretty )
Mix it all up and call it done! Best after it is chilled in the refrigerator for an hour or so. Or even the next day. Go nuts.
I am really enjoying having salads already made and ready to go in the fridge. They are so easy pack up for a picnic, or have at home after a long bike ride or time spent in the garden.
