I know when I open up your posts there will always be bright ones in there. I love Watermelon Luminosity and am jealous, as always, of your vegetable gardening prowess.

Watermelon Luminosity is a feast for the eyes, really nice! Stir-fry would be good, your veggies look very nice for it. I was having an abundance of cucumbers. Bought some bush cucumber plants this spring in a 4 pack, each section must have had 3 plants. I can't find it in myself to cull, so I divided them out & planted them all. Way more cucumbers than I can eat & DH loathes anything resembling healthy. I canned pickles, made dill yesterday & bread & butter today. Keeping my fingers crossed that they will turn out ok. Supposed to wait a while before eating. Hopefully I can keep up with the cucumbers for a while now.

Jean next to and on top of the purple eggplant are two white eggplants. Under that purple eggplant is the zucchini. This type is a very light green.

Am cooking now and dinner smells delicious!

RE: Sunny Sunday

The arrangement of veggies is my pick--different colors, shapes, and textures. Of course, not to snub some very fine hems.

RE: Sunny Sunday

Veggies look great. My fav. of the daylilies is Watermelon Luman. Glad you are having sun. It has rained every day here for at least 2 weeks. We need a few sunny days.

My DH decided to grow eggplant this year, even though niether of us is crazy about it. I think he thought homegrown would be different. It's not. But in an arrangement of vegetables its color is beautiful.....Like everyone else I have to go with the glowing color of Watermelons Luminosity. Speaking of Watermelon....yum. Think I'll have some of that tonight......Maryl

RE: Sunny Sunday

Your veggies are looking good! Let us know how those white eggplants taste. I harvested my first cherry tomatoes today. We're having them on salad tonight. Watermelon Luminosity is my favorite of the daylilies because of its wonderful color. I like the triangular eye on Elijah's Taxi, and the Diamond Executive group shines against the fence.

Honestly I am not sure I can taste the difference between the white eggplant and that purple one.

I cut up the veggies and then was thinking. This is the first time I have had eggplant from my garden. So instead of stir fry I added marinara sauce to the pan until I had enough to coat everything. Then I covered and simmered at a low heat until tender. Just tasted a piece of eggplant. Oh yummy!

Time for dinner! :biggrin: :thumbsup:

RE: Sunny Sunday

Watermelon Luminosity is my favorite. Just love it when you post pics of it. Stir fry is a favorite here.

My eggplants are still small here but they are growing. Broccoli has good size heads, peppers are almost ready to pick. I can't wait to eat my first tomato sandwich :-) I'm starting to harvest the cherry tomatoes for our salads. I also did the San Marzano ones to make sauce in the fall.

RE: Sunny Sunday

I have cherry tomatoes too but am so wanting those regular sized ones to be ready.

RE: Sunny Sunday

Oh man, Watermelon Luminosity is amazing. My peppers and veggies aren't quite ripe yet but it looks like your stir-fry is off to a good start!

RE: Sunny Sunday

that first pic just shines! very nice

RE: Sunny Sunday

I hope you enjoyed your stir fry though how you couldn't with those great looking veggies is beyond me, by the way your DL's are pretty great to.
