I've been wanting to post photos of our harvest, they're mostly on Facebook at the moment. So far we have zucchini, squash, beans, carrots, a few tomatoes and peppers. Onions, leeks and eggplant are almost ready. With many things going on, I'm occupied with our toddler's schedule, cooking, baking, housework, organizing and trying to keep up with my weed-covered garden. The weather has been super hot so I'm reluctant to water––oh the poor neglected plants.

Squash, zucchini and carrots harvest. Broccoli already bolted. At least we got to enjoy them for a short time.
Fresh organic vegetables with noodles, tasty!
Gold Rush, Royal Burgundy, Blue Coco, Tavera, Provider, Blue Lake, Strike and Tendergreen beans. I already started freezing plenty of these goodies. I have a pressure canner for low acid veggies but I'm not using it yet. I'm new in the canning world and I don't want to add pressure to myself! :) I'm keeping it simple with the water bath canning for now. When I feel more comfortable with that, I'll move on to more advance stuff.
The corn plants are tall and it's my first time growing them. I planted corn from seeds, this is an early variety called Fisher's Earliest (70 days). I hope they're successful and sweet. I'll let you know later.
Happy Friday, wishing everyone a nice weekend!
