I love the garden. I really do. Really. All winter long I get to eat yummy vegetables that my hubby has grown. I know exactly where they were grown. I know they have no pesticides on them and I know what was in the fertilizer – goat poop! Last year we had green and yellow beans, snow peas, carrots, corn, cucumbers, beets, broccoli and tomatoes. This year we added cauliflower, cabbage, brussels sprouts, eggplant, onions, shallots and horseradish. We also tried celery but it didn’t take.
It’s growing like crazy! The weather has been good and so should the harvest. I have been blanching and freezing beans and snow peas for days. I have done one round of carrots and beets. This is what I was given this morning:
I am taking a break from preparing the beans. I am going to make stuffed zucchini for dinner tonight. It is a good thing we like zucchini around here. I put 5 loaves of zucchini bread in the freezer yesterday, not to mention untold bags of shredded and cut squash. I am looking forward to the corn. And the tomatoes.
And to the end of the processing so I can have my life back.
