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.

    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.
