It was a long week here in our house. Dh had worked 11 strait overnights, and it was VBS week at our church and I was in charge of snacks. As with everything else I went a bit overboard. I really wanted to make the snacks healthier (maybe not totally healthy, but not cupcakes and frosting every night). So, we had fruit kabobs, pizza dippers (like mini calzones with pizza dipping sauce), snowcones made with 100% fruit juice concentrate, soft pretzels, and cinnamon glazed popcorn. I tried to do as much as I could homemade, which was a huge undertaking. Glad I didn't try to do more of it homemade. But I did use a bunch of my garden tomatoes from the freezer and herbs to make the pizza sauce which everyone loved! Pretty sure I have a permanent job.
On to the garden! It is Harvest Monday at Daphne's Dandelions, one of my favorite times of the week. More and more to show off from the garden each week! And the colors are just amazing! Go ahead, go see what fun we are having in the garden!
|A few beans are coming in, not great though. They just got too smothered by the potatoes. Hopefully other plantings will make up for it.|
|A Siamese twin scallop squash. Lots of cucumbers and zucchini are coming in. Finding it challenging to find things to do with them.|
|Loving the raspberries that are coming in now! And 2 more White Currant tomatoes.|
|Don't worry, those split carrots will not go to waste, they are perfect shredded into a lovely salad!|
|Tis the season for squash, squash, squash and cucumbers!|
|It was a busy day the day VBS was done, I made pickles, ranch, zucchini bread, whole wheat bread and chicken stock. Whew, I need a rest!|
|Some critters had eaten off the peppers here so they needed to be harvested and eaten. Grrrr! But the cabbage and potatoes were good thrown into the chicken stock I made.|
|Oh the raspberries!|
So, what are you harvesting this week! Join the fun and Happy Harvesting!
