Harvest

Our little garden and chicken flock are productive right now. We have a virtual farmer's market in the yard - I love it! If we had to, we could feed ourselves exclusively with things we've grown right here. That notion makes me absurdly happy - I love this time of year!
I hope you're all having an equally "fruitful" summer!

It all looks great! Must feel good to see and eat the fruits of your labor.

To me there is nothing like walking out to your garden and picking your own food. I wish mine had done better this year.

Mildred said...

Good for you Terri! That basket of goodies looks good.

Oh I love it! Is that butternut squash? I've never grown that, but I love it! My favorite thing is to go out in the garden and pick a big platter of tomatoes and basil and drizzle it with olive oil and sea salt for lunch~~~MMMM!

Terri said...

Marydon, we had the squash for dinner tonight and they were very good!

Susie, I'm sorry about your garden - sending good fall gardening thoughts your way!

Mildred, I am very pleased with our little harvest - I'm going to make your jalapeno recipe with our own peppers tomorrow!

Cris, that sounds wonderful! This butternut squash is from a volunteer plant that grew in the remains of last year's compost pile - clearly they like compost!

What a beautiful basket of goodies. I fought through the weeds yesterday and discovered one canteloupe and tons of blooms on its and the watermelon vines. Can't see the pepper plants, barely the tomatoes. We have been getting a few maters off of them but they are hard.

Hopefully next year will be better once we get our tiller working.

Take Care,
Debbie
