While its true that our vegetable harvests are winding down, I want to remind all the lovely Garden Party participants and my readers that the Tuesday Garden Party is not only about vegetables! It’s about all things garden related.
Personally, I’ve loved getting some great ideas for decorating, new recipes, and plant names that I’ve written down that I want to grow next year.
But I do know that with the weather cooling down, our little gardening hearts start to hunker down for the winter and that makes it hard to think of garden things to write about.
So for the next few months I’m going to have some themes for the Garden Party. Hopefully, this will help you plan your posts so we can all get some great ideas, be inspired, and get our little garden fix even through the winter!
Here’s the Tuesday Garden Party schedule for the rest of October, and the months of November, December, and January. However, this is just a guideline- if you’ve got something garden related that doesn’t go with the theme, it’s OK to link up. I’m not gonna call the TGP police!

So, in light of the fact that I’ve just listed today’s theme as a Monthly Seasonal Recipe one, I should probably tell you what I’m cooking with: Peppers, Tomatoes, and Zucchini.
And I just discovered a new way to store zucchini in the freezer- it’s in muffin form but not baked- I’m trying it out this week to see if I like it and if I do, well, you’ll probably hear about it!
So, now it’s your turn- what are you cooking with and what’s going on in the garden?
