Here's some of it: a whole bunch of green beans, a huge head of cauliflower, some sugar snap peas, and some garden peas.
We have lots of carrots ready, but I only pull them as needed, so today I pulled three. They're about six inches long, which made me pretty proud.
Later in the day, I went and cut the other big heads of cauliflower and the broccoli that was ready. Also, a few more peas, since I decided to just harvest and freeze what we had ready.
I blanched and froze all of these green beans and filled a quart sized freezer bag. I get this amount about every 3 days.
I steamed and pureed all the cauliflower and froze it in ziplocs too, to add to things like mac and cheese and mashed potatoes since other than deep-fried, the family isn't too crazy about just eating cauliflower.
And I blanched and froze all the garden peas. The sugar snap peas are just in the fridge for snacking on. Who can resist?
Then, just before dinner, I went out again and harvested a bowl full of leftover spinach and Swiss chard to chop up for homemade veggie pizzas.
I've had so much fun with my garden so far. The time has come to pull up the spring crops and plant summer ones, and I'm a little sad to see the huge green jungle revert back to its baby self. The broccoli and cauliflower are just about done, except for a few plants I'll leave in. The Swiss chard, spinach, and a lot of the lettuce are done, and the peas vines are starting to lose vigor. But I'll be adding a little corn, melons, and squashes, and of course, more carrots and beans. The tomatoes are about ready to burst forth and that makes me so excited. Yay gardens!
