It's Harvest Monday at Our Happy Acres. I completely missed last weeks. But for this week I still am getting plenty of goodies out of the garden.
|The first Lungo Bianco Zucchini was harvested along with a lot of beans, tomatoes, cucumbers, and marconi peppers.|
|The orange/yellow tomatoes are Valencia. The smaller ones are surprise ones. And the larger one is probably Brandywine. Also some Chinese Red and green noodle beans.|
|Blanched and froze two bags of a bean mix, bush, pole and noodle.|
|This is how I roast tomatoes to be made into sauce for the freezer for soups and stuff during the winter. I use a lot of sauce. I got 12 Cups out of this batch.|
|Snack peppers here and a second handful of raspberries, cucumbers, black beauty zucchini, tomatoes and basil and beans.|
|My first ever Celery. I cut down two bunches. There is still more but they weren't the size of these. Some bell peppers, noodle beans, cucumbers and tomatoes.|
|Carrot mix, cucumbers and Noodle beans.|
|I had homemade carnitas for lunch. My husband made the carnitas, I put it on rice and topped with pickled onions, cilantro, tomatoes, and homemade chipotle sauce. All homemade. And yummy!!!|
I ran accross several creatures during the week. This isn't all of them but the best photos!
|Red Velvet Ant (not really and ant but a wasp) They have a terrible sting from what I have read and can also be known as Cow Killers.|
|Red Spotted Purple. I usually end up thinking this is a swallowtail until I get a closer look.|
|One of two horn worms in my garden covered in parasitic wasps. I throw the other ones to the birds and keep them happy while I leave these alone!|
|In my picking of celery I found this guy. He is still as small as the tip of my fingernail. We will put him in the butterfly house and raise and release him.|
Hope you are having a fabulous gardening week! Don't forget to join me on Instagram @shawnannshomeandgarden
