It's been a long time since I've posted, but today was such a special day that I just had to share. We've been sick with a nasty flu for weeks, and tottering around slowly, but the garden doesn't care, it just keeps growing. So today I dragged my old tired self out to the garden and harvested a bunch of great stuff.
I got a little carried away with the kale and we can't keep up with it, so I've picked a big bin full to dehydrate. Once I dry and pulvarize them into a powder, they'll make a great nutritious addition to winter soups.
Our hoop house cucumbers are just growing beautifully, and I picked about 8 pounds that'll go into bread and butter pickles tomorrow.
I also got two handfuls of pea pods, and a zucchini and summer squash. We sure do eat locally this time of year.
These teepees hold 4 different varieties of green beans and they're just about running amok. The scarlet runner beans actually have small beans on them already, while the others are just beginning to bloom.
It's probably our best garden year ever.
