We are thick into harvesting our own late summer vegetables. On Tuesday, Country Boy pulled out the last of the zucchinis, so I only have 5 giant ones left to use. We have had over 45 cucumbers, so Country Boy has made some pickles. We are over run with tomatoes, and I have made several batches of my spicy tomato sauce. I also have boiled up heaps of tomatoes and frozen them in portions to use in cooking.
This weekend we are planning on digging up the potatoes and seeing how they went. The pumpkins are still getting bigger, and there are so many of them. We really need a whole room just to store all the produce we are getting (when I get my dream house!).
The nights are getting cool, and there is always dew on the ground in the mornings now. Autumn is definitely here. It wont’t be long until all the leaves start to change.
I am planning on sending several bottles of tomato sauce and pickles along to the harvest festival, and also plan to do some baking.
Our harvest has (so far) been very plentiful, and it seems appropriate that we should go along and give thanks!
