The weather has finally shifted here in the Pacific Northwest and it’s been ideal for ripening the summer crops. We had a wet and cold start to the summer. The last few days have been unbearably hot for me, but the garden has been very happy! Our view is very clouded by the smoke from BC. Our prayers go out to those who have been affected and those who continue to aid in the efforts to end this.
Here is a picture of the yummy food harvested this evening.
From left to right: Yellow “Cheddar” cauliflower, zucchini, kohlrabi, small pepper, 1 cherry tomato, green beans, yellow summer squash, Walla Walla onion, huge turnip, and 2 cucumbers.
Looks like I have some scrumptious veggies to use this week… and I need some new zucchini recipes to try out! This is only a few of the dozen or more we’ll have within the week!
Pretty soon I’m gonna be gifting our Zucchini like Oprah gifting her studio audience…. Beware friends and family! haha!
