Last week we were in vacation in Maine. It was lovely. I’m sure I’ll have more photos to share later in the week once I’ve gone through the 700 some I took. Here’s one from the first night.
Before we left, I picked these last few thing to take along, including any zucchini & patty pan that had developed at all.
We returned to very large zucchinis and cucumbers, and tomatoes bursting because of 2 inches of rain. Here’s the same basket as above, now with very large cucumbers, zucchini and patty pan.
The rest of the harvest upon returning included more tomatoes. The split sungolds went to the chickens. They’ll also probably get the monstrous cucumber in the picture above. We used most of the tomatoes to make our summertime tomato sauce. I think stuffed zucchini needs to be on the menu plan for this week to use these up.
This week I’m looking forward to getting back into the garden, and keeping the cucumbers and zucchini to a more manageable size.
Total this week: 21.9 lbs
Total this year: 114.9 lbs
