Harvesting

Sweet Delicious Melons....who knew you could grow these...they are delicious!

Peanuts!  I am going to roast a batch and see how they turn out....again...who knew?
K harvested carrots for the market the other day and pulled these...nature at its best.
Things have been going well in the garden and in good in general.  It is a busy time of year with harvesting and food saving.  I have frozen alot of tomatoes and will be doing some sauce in the next few weeks.  Will also be recreating K's mom's famous chutney/relish recipe and am excited to see how it will turn out.  The markets have been good and we see alot of return faces and have lots of great conversations and laughs!  Thanks to everyone who encouraged us and support us along the way.
K is working on the roofing project and it is a bit challenging as we have had the most rain all season in the last two weeks...ever since we started the project.  I guess we should have done it sooner and maybe the rain would have been here sooner...it is like washing your car...as soon as you do it, it rains.  It will look and feel good when it is all done!
