Harvest Time

Remember when hubby and I planted our garden?

Well, we ended up harvesting quite a bit. Just enough for the two of us.
We had quite a few salads made with the lettuce from our garden:

Even enjoyed some sweet and juicy strawberries:

We had more raspberries than ever this year, which our nephew also enjoyed eating right off the bush over the 4th of July:

The blackberries were the biggest I have ever seen!

We didn’t get as many tomatoes this year because our plant was slightly damaged in our wind storm. But we got a few!

We also had quite a few wax beans but I didn’t get a picture of those.
But we finally harvested the last of the garden produce this afternoon. Green onions and carrots:

Take a look at those carrots! They are as big as potatoes! Here is a picture showing them compared to a baby carrot:

It’s always rewarding to grow our own produce. It saves money and it’s fun to watch everything grow. We have stew in our future to use up those carrots! Smile

    Love reading your blog each day. You've inspired me. If you get a chance, stop by my blog one day.

  3. I love the look of those blackberries. Unfortunately the ones in the hedgerows behind my house have come to nothing this year due to the weird nature of a hot spring, damp summer and a very warm autumn.
