Started from seed, our first cherry tomatoes finally ripened and made for a delicious addition to a garden salad -- all from our garden except for the lettuce.
Freshly picked green beans sauteed in olive oil with garlic, salt, and pepper...num.
Who can resist an ear of freshly picked corn on the cob (especially when smothered in butter)?
Shredded zucchini for the freezer...
White potatoes cubed and pan fried in coconut oil and seasoned with sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, onion, and garlic -- oh my. :)
Dilly beans. :)
Gleaned from my sister's orchard, 59 quart jars of pears now adorn my pantry shelf.
Two of our layers turned out to be roosters...
"Lucky Ned" was discovered sleeping on our drying garlic. :)
Lots of green beans, potatoes, and tomatoes to be harvested this week -- so thankful for the late summer heatwave we're enjoying right now! Pie pumpkins are coming along nicely as are our sunflowers. Fall lettuces and carrots have been planted and are doing well; I never did get fall peas in and am thinking it might be too late; we'll see. Corn has been abundant! I may have enough to put a little in the freezer, but that will depend on how much we eat this week. :)
Too soon it will be time to wrap up the garden for fall and winter, but for now, we're enjoying the bounty and giving thanks to Him who placed man in a garden.
