The harvest is PLLENNNTY!

I really wish I could take credit for all these yummy fruits and vegetables, and say I worked my hands to the bone, pulling weeds and such. But the credit goes to my very domestic Mother in law. She prepares this mammoth garden and fills it with all kinds of goodies. This is just a very small sampling of what we get out of it. We have cukes, squishy squashes, zuchinni whinni, "antelopes", H2Omelons, The great pumpkins, greener beaners, green peppas, 6 different breeds of tomatoes toMAtoes, califlower, broccoli, and green lettuce. The stuff that comes up every year that she doesn't worry about are the peaches, apples, black berries, mulberries, raspberries, Snauzeberries(what movie!!??), and concord grapes.
We just started freezing the tomaters this week. So far I have 12 quarts in the freezer and 4 quarts of tomato juice. I also froze corn, blueberries(went to a farm for those) and green peppers. HOW DOMESTIC AM I!?
So the last week, we have been doing all things tomotoes. BLT's, Bruchetta, Spaghetti, Salsa, and Gazpacho. Even my dog Herby is getting in on the fun(he loves tomatoes.)
What have you harvested this month?
Do you have a garden?
Share share share friends...
That's the only way I get to snoop into your!
Have a great weekend : )

Can I tell you how jealous I am? Wow, to have access to all that fresh produce. Awesome!

Awesome picture you made of the veggies! I do not miss the big garden we had growing up although I do miss the fresh green beans. We only did peppers and tomatoes this year... that's plenty to keep up with when you've got two ornery, wild, energetic little girls! :)
