Harvest Time

Sophie and Josh have been leading the charge this September for both the CSA vegetables and animals.

Harvest season is in full swing.  I have a peck of peppers in the garage, a bushel of apples in the laundry room, tomatoes simmering on the stove, tomatoes in the dehydrator and the ingredients for salsa just waiting their turn in the boiling water canner.  Oh and a herd of fruit flies multiplying on the kitchen counter.

Here's what the truck at Hawkin's farm looked like this morning as we prepared to divide the vegetable shares.  Those squiggly light green squash on the right are 'Rampicantes'.  We decided they look like undiscovered creatures living in the deepest darkest part of the ocean.

Coming soon, I'll share some of these recipes for how I am preserving all this biomass, but right now I just need to keep slicing, stewing and freezing.

In the mean time here are a few timely posts:

What's going on in your kitchen and garden this week?


  1. Found and followed you through A Delightful Home's link party. I just love your blog! Feel free to stop by mine as well :)



  2. I love the sound of your kitchen - BUSY!

  3. We are just wrapping harvest up here and like you we are really busy getting everything preserved, we hang on to everything. Hope you have a great weekend and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon!

  4. Wow looks great, lots to keep you busy! Our garden was kind of a flop this year. Maybe we'll do a CSA next season and just have the garden for fun. Thanks for linking up to Snacktime Saturday!
