A Bountiful Harvest (Every Day)

We are so blessed to have such bounty.  We harvest every day, and are managing to eat or give away so it doesn't go to waste.  The Lord has sent us enough rain and enough sun and given us these fruits of our labor.  I will bake chocolate Zucchini cakes, Kubota Man will enjoy the hot and sweet banana peppers as snacks.  The tomatoes won't last long since our SIL the plumber is coming to install a new furnace, hot water heater and AC.
Right to left:  turnips, kohlrabi, fresh onions (I use up the small ones first and keep the large ones for storage), sweet snack-y carrots, and a pot of beets for supper.
A nice pot of potatoes for supper too, enough to fry some for tomorrow with fresh parsley.
And Thirty-one Cucumbers--I kid you not.  Day before yesterday I picked 8 and was sure I had got all the larger ones.  These English cucumbers (big stack on left) make good bread and butter pickles, but I'm not making any this year since we have enough left from last year and are watching our sodium intake--so pickles are a rare treat.

If you'd call and come for coffee, I'd share.  The Zucchini cake will be ready in about 2 hours.


  1. Oh! It just looks beautiful.
    So jealous... I am about to go and pick a handful of snap peas and a small handful of strawberries. So far, that is about all from our garden.

  2. Oooh, if you're baking your delicious Lemon Zucchini Loaf then I'm on my way...at least in my dreams. My carrots did miserably this year--I'm coveting yours. :)
