Monday Harvest posting on Sunday!!!


I will be gone most of the day tomorrow so thought I would get this posted today.  Last Monday was nice with just a little of everything!


I baked the three butternut squash I had picked.  Even got a small amount from the one that had the hole in it.  Froze this up into single servings for me for this winter.  Hope to buy a few more to freeze up as mine are done producing and I pulled out the vines.


Tuesday I harvested much the same as Monday except the tomato was rather a poor one and a cuke got away on me again!  Nice to have some tho!



We had to fence in the grape vines or rather we had to fence out our dog!  Coco started eating the grapes and dogs are not suppose to have grapes.  My friend that moved had given us those nice lattace dividers and this was the perfect spot.  Just put a low piece of lattice across the front and this keeps her safe.  What I don't do for my furbaby!!

 

I have started harvesting a few yellow beans from the old seed I planted late.  Not sure how many I will get as have seen a big ole grasshopper on them.  Something is eating the leaves and the beans so assume that is what it is.  Ugh!  The carrots this time were not as large as some I have pulled but they are still carrots!  So happy to be getting more raspberries!


Did it again!  Went out and picked more parsley to dry!


I didn't pick anything on Thursday but was glad to get more beans on Friday!  Sometimes when I am picking I think the beans are yellow and when I get them in the house they have a tinge of light green!  Does anyone else do that?  I think the zuchini and yellow squash are almost done and the patty pan squash have not done well this year!


Also got a few more raspberrys on Friday.  I couldn't resist setting the bowl in front of the "littles" pictures to snap it!!!  They were taken at Christmas time.  Can you believe it is the middle of September and Christmas will soon be here once again!  Does time fly for you like it does for me?????


I froze up most of the yellow beans.  The way prices are skyrocketing they will be tasty this winter with our meals!!!!  Thankful for all of God's blessings!

I love your trellising. Beautiful solution to a problem.

Looks like you got a good variety of harvests this week. I am sure that all that you have put away will be helpful this winter. Those butternut squash look good.

Hi Crafty Cristy, I didn't know what I would do with the lattices when she gave them to me but they work perfect for the grapes! I guess us gardeners are like squirrels putting away things for the winter! Thanks for visiting! Nancy

Your yellow beans look great Nancy and oh how I envy you those raspberries! Overall, great harvest! And yes, time goes by very very fast for me too. So fast sometimes it's hard to wrap my head around it. Seems like this summer just started and now it's over!

Beautiful harvest! Love the squashes, beans and berries. And can't believe you still have cucumbers going so strong! All mine are long dead.

Hi Nutmeg Gardener, Thanks for commenting! I am afraid that was the last of the cukes. Sure will miss them. Something is eating my beans now too so glad I harvested a few. Come again! Nancy

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Jenny, I think that was the last of the cukes and doubt if I will get much more of anything so cherishing what I am getting now! Thanks for visiting! Come again! Nancy

The new fencing looks great! You have some great yellow beans. I have not had a lot of luck with yellow beans the past few years as the bugs seem to favor those over the green and purple ones! Looks like your raspberries are doing well too!

Hi Shawn Ann, Thanks! That gift of fencing sure came in handy! Looks like my yellow beans are getting ate now too. Thanks for visiting. Come again! Nancy

Lovely mix of things in your harvest this week. I like your solution to the grape eating dog too! :D I think putting things in the pantry and freezer provides a deep sense of comfort and well being. I love eating it all through the winter, but I think I like the sense of calm and self sufficiency I get in the late summer when I am busy setting things by for later use.

Everything looks so good. We are anxiously awaiting our butternut squash. We generally wait until around Thanksgiving to eat it as it gets better flavor the longer you wait.

I never knew that about grapes and dogs. Our dogs eat them when we harvest our grapes in the fall.

Have a wonderful day.

Thanks kitsapFG! Maybe my feeling like I want to "put up" comes from growing up on a farm with my Mom doing that! Hope you'll visit again! Nancy

Hi Cheryl, If I waited till Thanksgiving here to harvest my butternut it may be frozen outdoors! lol Our dog ate grapes once too and lived but I don't want to take any chances after reading that. The lattice worked out perfect! Thanks for visiting! Nancy

Hi Nancy! Your harvests are such a blessing! Your garden has done very well this year! The lattice dividers look so pretty! You have really nice friends! Thanks for the tip on the butternut squash! Mine are in the pantry, but now I think I'll do them like that! Your friends from TN are nice, too! Good friends are hard to find! Their daughter is nice to have sent you those canned items! Love the pic of the raspberries and the kiddos! Thanks for sharing! Blessings from Bama!
