My first batch of swiss chard, I cut and dried in my dehydrator. When done, I had three big ziplock bags of it ready to be crushed and mixed into soups, stews and casseroles this winter. I have been cutting lettuce and mixed greens and giving away and even selling a few bags since I was completely overrun.
I am dreaming of another year or so down the road when I have a green house and can grow cucumbers and zucchini! A neighbour brought me over a couple of eating cucumbers that we inhaled. She also gave us an icecream bucket of pickling cucumbers. I made sliced dills with those!
|Lots of little tomatoes that I hope will start to ripen soon.|
|Beets in the back and second run of swiss chard in the front.|
|Carrots are growing and the kids are stealing them whenever they are playing.|
|Peas as far as the eye can see!|
|My beans are going to be ready in another week or so.|
|I have already picked about 4lbs of potatoes from my garden.|
|The world's smallest broccoli!|
