Garden Harvest

It is that time of year to harvest the garden. Last Saturday we picked, broke, washed and canned green beans. Twelve quarts!!!! I am so happy to have twelve (well 11, since one didn't seal and we opened immediately to taste) quarts of green beans in the pantry. We will enjoy those this winter for sure. I do not have a picture of the finished product in jars, but here are the picked beans.

We picked four big heads of cauliflower that will be blanched and frozen.

Broccoli, we have picked and eaten lots of broccoli, I think some will have to go to the freezer.

We still have celery, potatoes, carrots and Brussel sprouts to harvest. And we still have lettuce galore! Tomatoes are about finished but we just eat those as they come as we only have about 6 plants.I have two zucchini left, one is getting shredded for the freezer and the other will be cooked for a meal.

Frost did get some of the garden on Monday night, but only a small portion. I am thankful to have gotten those beans when we did because they would have been frozen on the bush otherwise.

We are very thankful for the generous garden this summer! And we will be even more thankful as we eat garden potatoes and green beans this winter!
