" Yee Gads It's Raining Veggies"

We are expecting a good rain today 80% chance that is..
I feel like it's raining veggies already!
Yesterday's harvest went by Hubby over to my Dad's
this morning for my Step-Mom Jeanette to deal with :)
Except that is, for the peppers inside these jars! I got a jar
each of Sweet Banana & Anaheim Mixed, Cayenne and Jalapeno






I gathered and washed this bounty, THIS MORNING!
I told you it was raining Veggies.................
I will make more Pepper Sauce, cut up Bell Pepper and
stick in freezer. I will slice the Cukes and put in Vinegar,
Salt and Olive Oil in Fridge....should be wonderful when
we return.......I'm cooking all the Squash, we'll eat some
for supper and the rest will go in the freezer!


What's left of my WONDERFUL Blackberries will be put
in small bags for the freezer............

The animal kids have to be taken to the kennel late afternoon
and the rest of the packing has to be done!!!! I gotta get going!!
Do you remember that I had to go to the UPS Store on Monday
to mail a package I fixed up for a friend/girl? You know the one
where Jake panicked and ...you know! Well, she got it yesterday!!
Click here and read all about it................ I'll see you all back here next week.............

What a mess of veggies. Your garden is producing so well. Mine is lagging now. Tell me what you did to the peppers. Is this used for the turnip or collard greens. I am needing to make some sauce for the greens.

Have a wonderful trip.

Carol,
What lovely green gems. I'm drooling. I can't wait until our garden is producing. It has still been pretty cool here at night and things just aren't growing very fast. I hope we get some warmer temps to make things grow!

Lovely harvest out in your neck of the woods. I just plopped my seeds in the ground as our soil temperatures are still cool.

Cucumber sandwiches! Tziki sauce! Zucchini bread! And, if those blackberries were mine they would never make it to the freezer.

Carolyn said...

Wow! I am so impressed. And so missing my garden this year.

I love making pepper quiche with our duck eggs.

What a bounty of veggies already ...
Lovely !
I simply love cucumbers in cider vinegar, kept in the fridge, some with sliced onions, some without.

Oh...lucky YOU! it's simply raining here; raining and raining and raining. A real frog strangler!
BTW, I adore greens and eat them all the time so appreciate that great green cook book. Thanks!

In addition to having the writer's touch, you definitely have a green thumb. That little garden is going to keep you busy, isn't it? Have a great weekend.

Glynis said...

Your bounty looks like mine! DH comes in all beaming smiles and I try and push more into the freezer with the same smile. Seriously, it is good to have so much good food on our table.

I can't believe you have all this bounty already. Everything here is still in its infancy, although strawberries are beginning to turn. Beautiful pictures.

Katherine Aucoin said...

Wow you certainly do have a bounty to put away.


I found a new Southern author to read. I'm sure she's no Harper Lee, but I'm in the mood for something light. I'll let you know what I think of Mary Kay Andrews

Pamela Terry and Edward said...

I feel so lucky. Our city just started a backyard farmer's market for all the gardener's to sell their overflow!! Early every Saturday morning Edward and Apple join the Songwriter and me for a walk to the city center where we load up on local vegetables, fruits, honey, breads and flowers. Such a treat!! And then....don't tell anyone...we trundle home and go back to bed!!! It is Saturday, after all!
