reaping what we sowed

This was the harvest* from our garden on August 16. (When did I put those pictures together and save them on Blogger all ready to post? August 16. Sorry about that.) Our gardens this year about been producing like crazy. I took pictures at the beginning of the summer and then again last month to show the difference, but, of course, have not posted those. Man, I'm lazy this month. Oh, and the pumpkin? Yeah. We have about 30 more where that came from. Sadly, it's just a little early for carving.

Most of the vegetables have kind of given all they had to give by now, but we are still going strong on tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, pumpkins, peppers, and peaches.

*pictured (roughly from top to bottom) are leeks, green beans, squashini**, pumpkin, corn, cucumbers, cantaloupe, zucchini, jalapenos, tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, pimento, sweet peppers, and carrots. Not pictured, but also harvested that morning, we regular onions and green onion.

**We have several volunteer plants in the garden. This one, the squashini, seems to be a hybrid of yellow squash and zucchini. Tis yummy.

I am jealous.

Extremely, extremely jealous. I'm so ready for my winter to be over so we can have fresh tomatoes again! One year we had a garden, and I ate so many sliced tomatoes (with cottage cheese and rye bred) that I got semi-permanent ulcers in my mouth. It was totally worth it.

Bread, not bred. Some of my keys are getting wonky.

What? No crook-neck?

Yum. (This one-word comment sounds kind of illiterate, but it's nonetheless representative of my reaction to this post. So I'm sticking with it.)

Holy cow. That's a lot of food! And cantaloupes? Awesome. I'm thoroughly impressed. :)
