Garden Happenings

Have I mentioned before that the farmer likes to grow things? This year, I asked him nicely to please let's make the garden a little smaller but it seems to have grown again. He's also been trying for years to grow cucumbers so he can make pickles with no success. So this year he planted five (yes 5) packages of cucumber seeds.

This is the first picking.

Then a week later I picked these.

On Friday we picked green beans. The farmer planted five, 30 foot rows of green beans. This is the beans from 1 1/2 rows. I still have lots of picking to do.

And canning and freezing.

Did I mention that the farmer isn't so much into the canning and freezing part?

  1. That is a lot of cukes and beans! You did really well though, although you've got lots of work to put them up :)
