Harvest Monday and Friends!


Last Sunday I picked a couple of yellow squash and gave them away.  On Monday this is what I harvested plus a few raspberries not in the picture.  Probably won't get this much again as the garden is winding down for the fall and winter.



On Thursday this is what I picked.  Two cukes, one patty pan, four green beans and a couple carrots.



Not sure when these were picked but one day last week! Hope I got the correct harvest posted on the correct days! lol


These are our friends, Pat and Jim, from TN.  They don't even like to garden but we were having a little fun!  They were kind enough to bring my electronic keyboard and some other things in their trailer from when we sold our park model in AZ and didn't have room to bring in our little car!  Wonderful people!  They are the parents of Joelle who writes the growitathome blog.  Pat and I started out years ago as penpals and then we became good friends.



Don't these look yummy!  Relish, Port Jelly and Bread and Butter Pickles.  Joelle (growitathome) canned them and sent them along for me with her parents.  Aren't I the lucky one!  Especially appreciated because all I have gotten canned so far this year are six pints of pickled beets!  Thank you Joelle!  Hope you all are still having a wonderful gardening season!!

Glad your raspberries are doing better with the rain. I think the rain has kicked mine up a notch too! Good to have long time friends.

Very nice harvest, love that gorgeous squash and large carrots.

I would like some raspberries about now. Didn't think I would say that after all we picked. What a blessing to have them bring your things up.

Have a wonderful day.

Hi Jenny! Thanks! My squash is tapering off and I don't have a huge amount of carrots but will enjoy what I do. Thanks for visiting! Nancy

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi nutmeg gardener! I could probably use about three times the amount of carrots that I planted! We sure did enjoy our friends visit! Thanks for stopping by! Nancy
