“Size isn’t everything” – Bill Vaughan


I have been having a great time in the garden this past week.  Each day that I arrive home from work, and begin my real work… tending my garden… I have been overjoyed at the amount of food I am harvesting.  While it might not be impressive to some, Kitty and I are delighted that we are getting real, healthy food from our hard work.  The various foods I have been harvesting this week are:

    • Mushrooms
    • Zucchini
    • Nectarines
    • Snow Peas
    • Snap Peas
    • Broad Beans
    • Turnips
    • Blue berries
    • Broccoli
    • Tomatoes
    • Apples
    • Pears

Did I say Apples, Pears and Tomatoes?   You bet I did!  I have been harvesting cherry tomatoes, and I have to say that they taste so much better than the ones from the supermarket.  The apples are so tasty and the pears are possibly the best I have ever eaten.  Our apple trees are very productive, so much so that I will have to dehydrate some.

This bountiful harvest has lead to some interesting meals… trying to make something with these ingredients.  Mostly, I just add a couple of things to the meal, or to a desert.  I even just throw a handful of Beans or Peas into a container and eat them while I am at work.  I actually took one of my zucchini into work, for a snack, and I showed to my friend Vee.


She brought one of her own in as a gift, and I have to say, I was very impressed with the size.
