Well, Grandpa John's garden is in full bloom. In fact some crops are in and processed like the peas and beets. Pickled beets are one of my own personal faves and this year was the first year we grew them and canned them.
On the left here is the zuchinni plant. Lots of stir fry and bread will be coming from this plant!
Here we have the cucumber plants. This year they're climbing the wire.
Hope to have enough to make at least two batches of bread and butter pickles. Can't seem to make enough of those!
And here's the weekend's bounty. All the potatoes and onions have been pulled.
I have an herb garden, too. I'll be hoofing it outside in a bit to grab some parsley. See those little red potatoes?
Boil them up and slather them with butter, a dash of salt and some fresh parsley. Divine!
The kiss of the sun for pardon
The song of the birds for mirth
One is nearer God's heart in a garden
Than anywhere else on earth
