Beans were next, and they came on heavy!
When I'm out in the garden picking tomatoes, they are both nipping at my heels to get some. They LOVE tomatoes. I'm sure it's not good for their tummies, but they fight each other to get some. Weird!
My flowers look nice too...
Random fact #2
I moved this enamel topped table down to the kitchen to do applesauce the other night, and I like it there, and since I'm still putting produce away, I might as well keep it here.
Now, since I've made my garden sound so great, and told you about how it's just producing so well, I'll tell you how I really feel....I'm beginning to resent my garden. That's right, I RESENT it.
I'm getting tired of getting all the produce ready for the winter. Now, don't get me wrong...later I will look in my freezer...
and sigh from delight because it's filled to the brim with items I can use to make meals all winter. Right now, though, I hate my garden's guts. Especially since I'm riding on the coat heels of applesauce making (63 containers later), and also since my husband informed me that our sweet corn will probably be ready to pick and freeze during the fair. I don't have TIME during the fair!
Random fact #3
I'm a little embarrassed to admit I have 2 freezers. Last year we realized after we butchered our pig, we didn't have enough room in the one freezer for the meat and all the things I freeze, so we bought another one. Who has two freezers?????
I'm giving my garden the evil eye right now.
I'm ready to till it under right now, but I don't have the heart. I'm lucky to have a garden and put away all the food that I do. My family likes the fruit all winter long, and it saves on grocery bills too.
So, I'll just BUCK UP as my husband says, and pick until there's nothing to pick anymore.
We'll see how I feel next week!
