Default What do you look forward to making the most from your garden?

Really hard question...
For me in no particular order:
Strawberries (be another year yet)
Tomato salad and sandwiches
Pickles after they've been pickled.
Asparagus and eggs, with a slice of cheese on an Italian roll (which I can't get in SD)

The thought for this was prompted by just finishing a platter of the above mentioned asparagus for breakfast (less the roll).

Cherry tomatoes - picked 68 yesterday morning. We also have the most delicious butternut squash you can imagine, I get 20 or so per week from 3 plants.

Tractor shopping now to plant a much bigger garden.

We're in the off season right now. We have some eggplant and okra planted if they make it in the heat. will also try some beets and scallions. Our July/August is the time for the fall crop. Then anything goes.

We like to grill wood fire pizzas outside. On pizza nights we do margarita pizzas loaded with tomatos and basil from the garden and seafood pizzas with shrimp and crab we catch on the barrier islands. That's probably my favorite.

Ate all the plums already.
looking forward to almonds, walnuts, pears, chestnuts, kumquats, peaches, quinces, pomegranates, figs, mandarins.
Not so much shucking the walnuts, but eating them is worth it.

Full veggie garden next season, way to much going on to plant now.

That's tough.

Either tomato sammiches, or ghost pepper pickles with the herbs, peppers and cucumbers from the garden.

My garden failed this year because of the drought BUT in a good year I have good luck with cucumbers.
I always plant Straight 8 variety or as I call them- Who needs a Man cucumbers!
My best crop was about 10 years ago, I got 576 cucumbers from a 20' X 20' plot. Two 5 gal buckets every other day.
ALSO when you get too much don't forget First Responders, LEO's. I will take excess to local Firehouse. They usually have to buy their own food.
If you do and have to leave produce be sure to leave contact info so they know it hasn't been tampered with! SAD TIMES.

In no particular order:

asparagus with eggs Benedict
BLT’s
strawberry and blueberry (own a U-pick) on cereal
any berry cobbler with Breyers French vanilla ice cream or home made ice cream
cantelope with ice cream also
zucchini relish with grilled hot dogs
ramps (yes, I have some in my beds around the house) with bacon and eggs
eggs from my chickens
Mrs. Hazan’s tomato sauce with just butter, onion, Roma tomatoes, and salt
fresh silver queen corn (picked just minutes before) and only boiled for 3 min with real butter and salt
quartered Brussels sprouts with sautéed shallots in bacon fat and finished in chicken stock
Yard long beans
new potatoes

a little odd how many things have either bacon, eggs, and shallots or garlic

Asparagus. I cut them eat them raw. They never make it inside.

There's a lot of wild asparagus here. It grows in the marshes.
