Here is a peek at my Summer Bounty from my Kitchen Garden!
Enjoy!

Can you guess what beautiful vegetable will emerge from this?



One more glimpse for you to guess



Bell Pepper waiting to turn RED



Eggplant ready to be plucked, I made sambar from the first harvest :)



Cucumber, getting there..................



Roma Tomatoes, Basking in the sun.....


Mint, ready to spread it's wings...


When shall I see thou? Cantaloupe


Okra, stuffed okra? may be Bhindi Alu? or will it be Bhindi-do-Pyaza :)

Hi Richa,

I don’t know about yellow flower.....but I think I show this to my mom she is botany with B.sc. so I think she know about this flower......but wonderful plant of vegetables and also fresh when you cook. I like the garden of vegetable and fruit also.:)))))

hmmmmmm Zucchini is a squash, so I am right.... :D

Zucchini (IPA: /zu'kini/, in North American and Australian English) or courgette (IPA: /kʊə'ʒɛt/, in New Zealand and British English) is a small summer squash.
