Dwindling!!!!!!!


Not too shabby of harvest for Tuesday!  Those few Asian pears on the right fell off the tree.  Peaches are done now.  Maybe a couple left on the tree!


Gathered a little lettuce this day.  Bought organic lettuce and organic spinach at the grocery store last week! YIKES!


Two containers of the four that I froze up from our peach tree plus what we ate!  Happy Dance!  Still getting a few strawberries.  Thinking about making another bed for next year!  That bottle in the upper left is my dried elderberry flowers.  I didn't know how many to dry but if I am going to use a teaspoon a day and a little mint to make tea every day this winter to try to stay healthy I think maybe I should have dried more!!  Learning!


This is our youngest granddaughter Cali ready to start preschool! Yikes again!  She will be four already next month.  What confidence.  That backpack looks bigger than she is!  My! How things have changed since when I started school!


This is the beautiful setting in Coffee Creek Preserves that my band played in for the 911 Memorial Service.  There is a fountain in the background and trails to walk.  It is a wonderful place to go and enjoy nature.


 My refrigerator art display by Gracie and Cali.  Merry Christmas!  LOL  I may be rushing it just a little!!!!

I wish I had had enough peaches to freeze some. But I ate everyone that came off the tree fresh. I'm hoping next year we get fruit from both the trees. I'd love to preserve them.

Hi Daphne, I will hope for good harvests from both our peach trees next year!!! Thanks for visiting! Nancy

Great harvest. I am still envious of your peaches! I have read about elderberries helping to keep you healthy. I want to try it! I saw a recipe for elderberry syrup. It's never too early for Christmas ;)
Beautiful setting for a concert!

Hi Shawn Ann, The peaches were an unexpected blessing! I just harvested the blossoms. Decided to be lazy as I don't like working with the messy elderberries so didn't make any syrup this year! Thanks for commenting! Nancy

You have a nice array of fruit there Nancy! We get spoiled with our home grown lettuce so it is hard to go back to the high prices of store-bought isn't it?

Audrey said...

hi Nancy ... nothing better than home grown peaches. I did not buy any this year and sure love peaches. Most in the store are tasteless. So happy that your garden is still producing, even just a little.
Thanks for sharing. Always enjoy seeing what you harvest.

Hi nutmeg gardener, Thanks! Yes, it is going to be very hard to start buying things from the grocery store that I have been getting out of the garden! Thanks for visiting! Nancy

You're not rushing the holidays any faster than retail...(chuckle) Or my husband, for that matter. He's been listening to Christmas carols on his Kindle Fire for a couple of months already!
