The Garden Keeps Giving ................................

and Ms. Crew is still keeping watch over the garden , she's looking a little ragged and tired. But she's still standing after the last couple of storms we've had , guess she decided she needed to keep her day job (LOL).

~ Yesterday's Harvest ~
I'm getting lots of tomatoes out of the garden now. The squash are still producing , the zucchini have slowed down though. The corn is a loss , I ordered heirloom corn this year , but I think they may have sent me field corn or it might be hard because of the drought conditions , not sure which. I'm going to let it dry on the stalk and give it to the chickens. We haven't dug our potatoes yet , we decided to leave them in the ground until the weather gets cooler. I have dug a few to cook though.
~ Today's Harvest ~

I've got the tomatoes laid out ripening. I'll be making a few jars of salsa and spaghetti sauce by the end of the week hopefully.

What are you harvesting or cooking this week ?

Hi Tammie ~ Wild herbs count too , I harvested a small batch of red clover from the field yesterday too.

Hi Judie ~ Hope all is well with you.

Bringing in a few beans and tomatoes...which are just about finished I think.

Other than that not a lot going on.

Your pickings look good! As does Ms. Crew...she's a hearty soul!
Too bad about your corn but feeding it to the hens is a great idea!

This week one thing is
for sure is I"ll be,
Cooking with Apples.
Seems that could be
a title of a cook book.

The storms might of knocked
her down but the main thing
is that she got back up and
keep on, keeping on with the
daily duties.

Yummy Havest!!

Thanks for the blog entry

God Bless You and Yours!!!

It looks wonderful. Hope you get that salsa and sauce made. It's a shame that the corn didn't do well.
