Fresh from the garden, the past month or so

Why yes, I have still been picking things from the garden this whole time. We’ve been having lots of grilled vegetables and zucchini muffins, and they are delicious. I haven’t done due diligence in the photo department, but here’s what I’ve got:

20130815-212721.jpg1lb 2oz okra
9lb 14.6oz tomatoes
6lb 5.7oz zucchini
9.7 oz beans

20130815-212902.jpg15lb 11.3oz cucumbers
2lb 12.35 oz spaghetti squash
(We had that for supper last night!)
1lb 13.15oz mystery squash
1lb 2.25 oz butternut squash
11.35oz small wonder spaghetti squash

I have no idea what that bright orange mystery squash is. It looks nothing like the description on any of my squash or pumpkin seed packets. (Which is all I’m going by, since the only one of them I’ve grown before is spaghetti squash.) Anyone care to venture a guess? I’m not sure if it’s mature either, because a little worm nibbled through the stem and caused it to fall off the vine.
On a slightly related side note: a guy that drives by our house all the time on the way to the post office and knows me from Cracker Barrel saw me at work today and marveled at the fact that I’m growing pumpkins on a trellis.

P.S. We’re naming our puppy Kate. Just testing you to see if you’ll read all the way to the end when not enticed by pictures of adorable animals.

Oh, wait….


Fresh from the garden July 18

That makes 498 all together! Of course, some of them aren’t an bigger than a golf ball, but still. I’m almost done cleaning the first batch and getting them ready for storage.

I ate it, and it was delicious.

There are almost always rabbits outside the fence around sunset, but this one was just hanging out in the yard munching on clover and lying around.

He was down by the trellis tunnel. Please note the beautiful butternut squash hanging over there.
