J and I took advantage of the long weekend to dig into the garden and harvest quite a bit of produce. We focused primarily on our heirloom tomatoes, kale, and zucchini. We probably harvested 3 full boxes of kale, and 3 or 4 full boxes of tomatoes. Plus, a handful of zucchini, cucumbers, beets, and flowers (zinnias and snapdragons).
I feel like I spent all day yesterday cutting up tomatoes to dry! I love it, though, because there’s nothing better than eating our own produce through the winter. We blanched and froze a huge batch of kale and made some kale chips, and dried more tomatoes than I can count.
We also did our fair share of eating the veggies– last night for dinner we had beets, fried zucchini, and a focaccia made with dried tomatoes, and home made tomato sauce to dip it in. And this morning, more zucchini bread!
Simon hangs out while we work in the garden and catches bugs.
Time to head home!
