More Garden Bounty
This is from a couple days ago because much of what you see here has already been canned and stored. But we got about 1.75 lbs of tomatoes, 4lbs of beans, 4.5lbs of cucumber, 3lbs of scallopini and 2 little lemon cucumbers. We also pulled out a few more onions. At the end of the growing season I'll tally up all the weights and see how much I got of each this year.
Soon I will be getting more tomato, cucumber and zucchini from the garden. It look like my apples and pears are almost ready and my grapes are starting to darken. My pumpkins are also starting to turn orange and I should get at least 2 or 3 acorn squash. I must say, I didn't think I'd get anything from the garden this year but here we are canning and preserving surpluses anyways. What a pleasant surprise!
