Vegetable Garden?

Saturday, January 28th, 2012

So my brown thumb and I are going for take 2 on growing our own vegetables.
🙂
I had a tiny bit of success last year and managed to grow some broccoli, a couple of zucchinis and 1 yellow squash.

My issue is this:
If my broccoli (or tomato or pepper) row is successful, I now have… what, maybe 2 weeks to eat 9 or so heads of broccoli before it goes bad?

Is there anything I can do to enjoy the vegetables of my labor for longer? I could probably freeze broccoli (could I?), but I can’t freeze tomatoes.

I work so hard, and I want to be able to enjoy the things I grow.

              One last trip through the overgrown jungle that is our veggie garden! We harvested an incredible amount of homegrown organic vegetables from this garden. Stuffed our freezer and enjoyed as much as we could eat fresh. Juicy corn, oodles of beans and sun ripened tomatoes, cucumbers and zucchini by the bucketload, and enormous potatoes. That’ll do.

                  P.S. I have asked this in the garden section also, but surely there are some green thumbs among the vegetarians.

                  🙂
                  Thanks for all the wonderful answers so far. Spaghetti sauce sounds wonderful. I must add that tomato is an example. Any more general thoughts on vegetables in general, and enjoying them for longer would be very helpful.

                  🙂
                  Oooh, you are so right. I should add that.
                  I live in the U.S. in Ohio. Weather can be very tricky here.
                  Sometimes we have enormous winters, sometimes very hot summers.
