HARVEST TIME

The amounts of veggies we have been getting everyday is AWESOME! Seriously, my husband planted over twenty crock neck plants and I think he is realizing now that is WAY to many! We had over three grocery bags stuffed in just five days. I keep walking out thinking there can't possibly be more veggies a day later, but there is!

~Here is my little garden turkey making a "feather hair" with the onions~
~Savanah was in charge of picking beans and more tomatoes~
~The path ways have been taken over by all of the squash plants~


~The sunflowers that line the garden are over ten feet tall! Savanah planted them herself and I must admit they look so beautiful!~ I am so excited to start freezing and making fresh salsa!! I can't wait to get some fruit bushes in the fall and really add more variety to our selections!

If anyone has any good recipes for anything to can let me know!! I love trying new ideas and recipes!

I am so jealous. You have got to tell me your secret so I can have an amazing garden next year. What do you use on it to make the plants huge?

I don't have my own garden, but I have been raiding my families and friends that want to get rid of all of there crops they have grown. I love it! I am hoping to can some peaches soon.
I wish I would have seen you while you were here in Idaho. Why didn't you call when you went out to dinner with those girls. That would have been so much fun. I didn't really get to talk to very many of them during the reunion. I should have gone to the dinner part, but that didn't happen. I am glad you have had a really fun summer. I miss ya and your family. Tell Beau that I even miss him. Hee hee!

Jess and Dusty said...

We learned the hard way, as well, not to plant too many squash and zucchini plants. They are extremely fruitful. It's good seeing you around town- hee hee. Okay, the only store I make it to these days.

jen said...

Great job!! No need to buy veggies at the store for a LONG time :) Today I made some really yummy zucchini bread. I'll post it on my cooking blog. Good luck finding new recipes!!

You are an "offical mormon" with a garden like that. Way to go on all the planting. I wish we could plant one,but our chocolate lab would dig it up.

Kris said...

aWeSoMe garden Bon. I'm not surprised at all.... I can see your dad in you so much. He really has taught all of you so many great talents and values. I really admire your dad and you girls for following in his footsteps. (mush over) I have the best recipe for a zucchini bake if you haven't tried that. YUM! Let me know if you want it.
Your kids are so adorable, I miss all of you and still want to come visit you!!
