We got our first harvest of green beans yesterday. I can hardly wait to cook them. I’m going to put new potatoes and some herbs in with the beans and let them cook down. Yum! The rest of the beans will be snapped, blanched, vacuum packed and put in the freezer for winter.
We got our first harvest of cucumbers too. They’ll be sliced and put in a bowl of icy water with just a sprinkle of lite salt.
A few more squash needed picking, so I picked them. We don’t really need them. I have a huge pile of squash on my counter right now. I’ll post a photo of them someday soon.
The leafy vegetable with the bright color leaf stems is Chard. It’s an interesting veggie. The stems has a celery-like taste to them and the green leafy part taste similar to spinach. This year is our first experience with it and we like it a lot.
I dug up a few potatoes to cook in with my beans.
I picked a few onions to have on hand for cooking or if my husband want to eat them raw.
Thankfully this update is a positive one.
I hope your gardening season is a productive one.
Here’s a few photos of our garden that show it’s progress.
Our crops are growing well (and so are the weeds. lol)
