It's starting to get a little busy in the harvest and preserving department around here! The week started out with some nice pictures of some nice harvests.
A harvest from the plots on Monday
Some beautiful tomatoes from the home garden
A pretty picture of carrots
Yes, there has been a lot of harvesting around here this week. If you are a regular at my blog, you know about the potato harvest this week. I could take many pretty pictures of many pretty harvests...but, let's be realistic. This is what is really going on around here!
There are onions
hanging on the right side of the kitchen door and garlic hanging on the left side
garlic hanging on the back porch
some more onions
every where you look there are
If you go into the dining room you will find
some Raspberry Jam waiting patiently to be labeled and moved to the cupboard in the basement
There are peppers
hanging from the pot rack drying, which will be made into Cayenne Pepper and Paprika Powder. There are herbs hanging where ever I can find a place to hang them.
I come home from the plots on Sunday to find "The Italian" jamming to Nellie, frying zucchini and making a nice red sauce for some zucchini parmesan. He made 3 to be frozen and used over the winter.
I cleared a few thing from the island to take this picture. The tomatoes are coming in, the zucchini ready to be made into parmesan, some cabbage, some peppers and who knows what else. In the background you can see some of the mess Erin.
Some pickled pepperoncinis and jalapenos!
That's just some of what's happening around here! Some people may think we're a little crazy...but, we just love it!
