This week has been cold and rainy here. I don't have a full garden picture for the post today because last night was once again - cold and pouring rain. I love my blog but not that much. I stayed inside.
But even with the weather, and the fact that the trees are turning yellow and leaves are falling, we still had an ok garden week. This week our big producer was the cauliflower. Nice big heads are finally coming together for us to pick. The kids LOVE that I grew purple cauliflower this year. So fun and colorful at the table for meals. Our broccoli wasn't as great this year due to the heat but we are thankfully blanching and preserving a bit of the cauliflower as well and that will help round things out for the months ahead.
The green beans have continued to produce. This weekend I will probably be able to can another 7 quarts and add to the 30 quarts we already have canned and in the pantry. Some of the bush beans have slowed down so much that chances are I will pull them this week. Pole beans are still growing and producing great.
The zucchinis have been doing ok but, due to my diet of just fruit, veggies and meat, I am eating it as fast as it grows. Talked to Josh and he is ok with the lack of zucchini bread and cakes. We still have a few bags in the freezer from last summer so there are bound to be a few sweets in the future.
Love this season of fresh food so very much. The clearly evident arrival of fall weather this week has made me sad.
