Let Your Love Grow Tall
Some things, like the squash and zukes, have about pooped out at this point and are not as full as this photo shows anymore. In fact, I've pulled up about half of them. The corn there is much, much taller though. The corn in the new expansion has not done as well but that soil is new and very lean, so that's not unexpected. We are getting some corn to eat but it's not real full.
Of course, we are keeping most of the fruits of our labors for ourselves. In fact, tomorrow is a big canning day. I've got peas, beans and salsa ready to go, so tomorrow morning will see the ol' pressure canner in action once again. We still have a fair amount of jams left from last year so I don't know that I'll do much more of that but I might make some pickled okra to give away. Sadly, I really can't eat it anymore but I know several people that enjoy it and we are getting a good bit of okra this year, so...! It's an easy gift.
How goes your garden this year? Or do you depend on the farmer's market?
