Zucchini Muffins with Zucchini from OUR garden!

We’re excited to announce that this morning we served guests the first dish made from veggies grown in our new garden!! 

Back in March we started growing our assortment of plants from seeds.  In May we built a fence around the raised beds… a necessary precaution with all the bunnies we have in residence.  Mother’s Day weekend we planted the garden, and voila… this morning we served Zucchini Muffins from our very own garden!  Sorry if I sound a bit giddy, but this is the first time I’ve ever tried growing my own vegetables, and a have to say, I’m a bit surprised at how easy it’s been… plus its SO much more gratifying than picking up ingredients at the grocery store, or even the local farm stand!

These muffins turned out SUPER-moist and delicious.  Whether you’ve got your own garden or not, give them a try:
