Our garden has been doing great this year that is until all this rain hit us the last few weeks.
To much rain makes the ground soggy and when the sun comes out it steams the plants so they go through a spurt of looking like heck for awhile. Hopefully the tomatoes survive it seems like we waited so long for good tomatoes.
We have given away about 100#s of produce so far mainly yellow squash, zucchini squash and cucumbers. We have put quite a bit up in our freezer and eaten squash 2-3 x a week since it started making. We eats lots of cucumbers and tomatoes as well. I made some zoodles to put up as well.
We put up 7 quarts of dill pickles yesterday that is only the start.
We share a good amount with Jacks brother, sister n law and mother n law. My mother n law loves tomatoes.
This pic is from a few days of picking this was not quite all of the squash and cucumbers but it was enough to make a good picture. We had eaten a few tomatoes already as well it is so hard not to eat them they taste so so good.
Jack has put a lot of time into the garden this year and it has really paid off. I think we have 53 tomato plants maybe more. My favorite tasting one is the mater sandwich and beef steak.
Planting a garden and watching it grow brings us both great pleasure. Sharing with friends and family makes it even better.
Getting to photograph the harvest really makes my day.
