Harvest Time

Gardens and freezers are full here in the midwest, as they are in most of the country. Berries are ripe for pickin'. Our little vegtable patch is chock full of peppers, zuchini, crook-neck squash, and tomatoes (not ripe yet.) Here is what I have in my freezer from this year's harvest (either picked from our garden or u-picked from a local farm:
  • 4 bags of sliced strawberries
  • 6 bags of blueberries
  • 3 loaves of zuchini bread
  • 4 bags of sliced banana peppers
  • 3 bags of blueberry muffins (8 muffins in each bag)
  • 1 jar of strawberry freezer jam from our neighbor(we've already eaten 2 jars)

We've also had strawberry shortcake, strawberries on pancakes, blueberry crisp, blueberry cobbler. Yum! Here's a picture of a recent harvest.

Whoa. . . those zucchinis are almost as big as those strong big boys! And blueberry cobbler sounds oh-so-good! Way to go! Our tomatoes are quite green in Oregon too . . . didn't make it to red last year, we're keeping our fingers crossed!
