Happy Harvest Monday! I’m up to my ears in tomatoes, yellow squash, and cucumbers. Here is what I picked this morning:
The apples are all windfall apples from an old tree that was here. They are not the prettiest, but they taste very crisp and sweet, with a bit of tartness. I’ve been peeling and drying them in the dehydrator. They make a great snack.
I also wanted to share with you some harvests from other days this past week:
My kitchen looks like a farmers market. We have baskets full of food on every surface and the fridge and cabinets are full of pickles, relish, jams, and gourds. It is a little overwhelming, but then I remind myself that this is the reason we work so hard in the garden all year. Today’s to do list involves making a huge batch of tomato sauce.
