It's going to be a late night.


Erin said...

Oh my gosh, lady! That's quite a harvest today, I'm with you... I think I'll be in the kitchen late tonight too! Good luck - I'm sure everything you make will be delish!

Judy T said...

sigh... I picked 3 tomatillos and a starting to blossom rot half grown cucumber today.
But, I've got a couple of tomatoes ripening. Yippee!!

dr momi said...

whoa -- nice harvest! You better get off the computer and start working! :-)

Mr. H. said...

Beautiful crops, looks like all your hard work is paying off and then some. That's a lot of cucumbers and beans...I'm jealous.:)

Mama Pea said...

Great harvest = hard work! I hope you like your "white" pickles more than I did. I grew them a couple of years ago thinking they would be a novel idea. I pickled some quarts all white, and mixed some quarts white and green. They tasted just like regular green pickling cucs/pickles but NOBODY liked the looks of them. (How much we are used to the familiar!) Our daughter said they reminded her of something you would see in a jar in a college science lab. (I probably shouldn't have mentioned this at all, huh?)

I have to thank you for the link you posted in March to Tammy's blog. I have connected with Tammy and found a kindred spirit. She does have beautiful cows, mini goats and a great spirit. Thank you so much. I also want to thank you for a great blog. Mine is CreationsbyLSM

Wish I could be visitin' ya right now and helping!!! Everything looks ravishing, Josie! Are you guys planning a visit this month at all???

Jo said...

Erin -- If we lived closer, we could have canning parties and our boys could wrangle with each other in the back yard. But alas, no naval bases in MN!

Judy -- 3 tomatillos -- that's more than I've ever grown!

Dr. Momi -- Thank you!

Mr. H -- Ha! I'd trade my peasley weedy garden for your beautiful expanse anyday! Although, yours is likely a lot more work..

Mama Pea -- So far I am loving the white pickles. I've just done slices and relish, and nobody's made the science lab analogy. It helps that my kids are still in elementary school!

Linda Sue -- You're welcome, Tammy is a sweetheart. Good luck with your new property!

Karen -- I wish you could be helping too! We probably won't be back til later September. Just too much to do here. Still okay with us bunking with you guys??
