I was wishing for zucchini again and lo and behold, I come back from a Labor Day vacation and I have three zucchini!

I know summer is kind of over, but I still want fresh produce and refreshing dishes to eat.

The Fitchen made zucchini pesto roll-ups, inspiring me to make similar ones with hummus. I got a 10-ounce Sabra classic hummus container for cheap last week and used that. I also have a bounty of orange cherry tomatoes aching to be used.

I didn’t roll it as neatly as The Kitchen recipe, but it was still delicious. I ate a few for lunch today.

All you really need for this recipe is a filler, cherry tomatoes, zucchini and toothpicks. I used my mandolin slicer to  make the slices, placing it on the medium setting. That worked out the best.

Enjoy the rest of the garden bounty with this recipe by The Fitchen!

No. 1 — I planted my garden! Last year, one of our publications started the “Container Garden Chronicles.” Because I am on a new staff this year, I decided to participate. I have done container gardening before and have worked on Goldfinch CSA for two years (going on three!) so I hope I know what I am doing.

I have a tendency to kill plants, especially in containers. So that is why my tomatoes went into the ground instead. One of the bosses allowed us to plant in the ground on the side of the building. I also am going to plant beans and watermelon there. In the containers are lettuce and one pepper plant. Fingers crossed that I don’t kill them!

No. 2 — It is RAINING! Related to the planting, I have a hard time remembering to water my plants. It is a problem. My plants at home know how to survive without much water. Plus, it has been so hot and muggy outside the past few days, and very, very dry. This rain will break our heat wave and give my little plants a drink.

No. 3 — I can’t wait for Memorial Day weekend because I get to relax. Though, having a day off of work makes things stressful when I get back.
