A garden update.
Tori loves the garden. She’s the only one Dad can trust out there without supervision. She loves to go check the beans and the tomatoes and she knows when and how to pick everything. She’s learning so much!
She was excited to help prep the beans for dinner and freezing.
Alex was thrilled to sample our first watermelon.
He does like watermelon. He calls it “little lemon.” It took me a while to understand and he got very frustrated with me. sigh
We have pickled LOTS of cucumbers.
We have frozen green beans.
And we have some beautiful tomatoes – Roma, cherry, and an heirloom. They’re delicious.
We’re getting overrun by yellow squash. We have frozen lots of it. We have sautéed it, casserole’d it, grilled it, and given lots away. We’re almost sick of it!
We have onions drying in the cellar.
We have canned blackberry jam and tomato sauce.
Soon, it will be apple season and we’ll make applesauce and apple butter!
Gardening is really hard work!
