Harvesting

It’s been a weird mix of rain, sunshine and heat for the past week or two. As you can see below (through the rain) it’s helped push everything we planted a month or two behind schedule finally set root, flower and fruit. In this bed we have a mix of flowers, perennials and vegetables.

About a week ago I took this photo of our first squash producing fruit. The leaves in the foreground are our sweetcorn that are now sporting ears.

While weeding along the side of the house today I noticed this squash had doubled in size from two days ago and picked it. Everything in the garden seems to be at this pace now. Before we know it jars of tomatoes and other goodies will be lining our pantry. I have some great new canning recipes from Well Preserved, so we’ll be eating well this winter. Below is our first squash, with a cat for scale. We have tons more on the way and in a couple days I’m planting another round of cold weather veggies in any available locations. I’m excited.
