Our garden is doing really well!
We've been getting lots of zucchini.
And I harvested our entire beet crop.
I wanted to pickle the beets when they were still babies.
After I cooked them and drained them the smell was divine.
I contemplated not pickling them at all - but just devouring the whole lot.
Then I contemplated planting nothing but beets in our entire garden next year.
I settled for replanting the row instead, in hopes of a second harvest.
And these? They are wonderful. Even the boys adore them!
My Dad gave me some sage, which is so delicate and beautiful!
Hopefully I don't kill it.
Our beans are doing well.
We have LOADS of green beans!
Good thing they are one of my favorite foods!
I think we'll be picking these in a week or so.
And my neighbor, JP, from A Quiet Corner gave me marigold seeds.
Even those have obliged by coming up in the garden!
The perfect zucchini flower -
And Pierce's favorite - summer squash!
Our tomatoes are a work in progress, but hopefully if all the flowers will start turning into fruit we'll have some of those soon too.
