It seems so good to finally be able to post on Harvest Monday.  It is slow at coming but should have plenty squirreled away by fall.

 Mondays Harvest of green beans and also picked the last head of broccoli and a few side shoots.  Made a great turkey and broccoli Curry for dinner

 Wednesday was the best of the week with tomatoes, cucumbers, Zucchini and also got the beans canned and had a nice lunch from the garden. Pulled the last of the scallions from the community plot for the Food Pantry.

 Saturday more green beans that are now 3 more pints canned plus some for dinner Sunday. Zucchini that is now in the freezer shredded for bread (12 cups), cucumbers and tomatoes.  Also picked 9 nice bell peppers at the community plots guess forgot the picture.  They are sliced and in the freezer.

  1. Your beans look so nice canned! I need to get a pressure canner so I can also can mine.

  2. Nice harvest this week!! Love your canned beans!

  3. Thanks both Allison and Holly. I much prefer to can. I have 2 freezers full but mostly of meat which I will be buying this fall as things go on sale. I do freeze some green beans if I have a lot. I do them shoe string (french) style. Also free all the broccoli, cauliflower and brussel sprouts.

  4. Everything looks wonderful! Boy that plate of goodies is making me hungry for lunch!

  5. GREAT Harvest. Wow you really went crazy all the sudden. :-)

  6. Your garden may have been slow to wind up on production - but once it got going it really started pumping out the produce! Lovely harvest with quite a good variety as well as substantial amounts.

    Lunch looks delicious by the way. :D

  7. Fabulous harvest. It must be so hard living in your zone trying to grow things. I know my mother struggled in her mountainous area.

  8. Looks like those beans are going to last you a little bit! Looks like a great harvest!

  9. Just catching up on the blogs. That's a nice looking week of harvests.
