|We've got cucumbers everywhere - it's time for pickles!|
|18 cups of shredded zucchini, ready to be added to breads and muffins throughout the year!|
|My first tomato. There's many more coming ripe now.|
|Pumpkins. Pumpkin pie is one of my favorite things, so I'm glad |
to be able to make it from my garden this year.
|Winter squash. I've never grown (or cooked) it, but I had the seed, so I wanted to try.|
Like our garden, our relationship has taken a lot of work this year. We are re-building from the ground up. It's tilling, and more tilling, and fertilizing, weeding, planting, watering. Hours have been spent pruning away the dead branches, encouraging the new growth. We still have a way to go, but the fruit is starting to show, and the harvest will be sweet, bountiful, and extended.
|An old, old picture, but one of my favorites of us.|
